[OpenAFS] Re: [OpenAFS-devel] Google Summer of Code 2011: Seeking Mentors,
Project Ideas, and Promotion
Mon, 28 Feb 2011 22:14:55 +0000

Today the application window for organizations to apply for the 2011
Google Summer of Code opened. At the present time, I have not heard
from anyone that is prepared to commit themselves as a mentor. There
have been two individuals who indicated that they might consider it.
Now is the time to step up. I would like to see a minimum of four
committed mentors by this Friday, 4 March 2011, if OpenAFS is going to
submit an application.
Please send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing
