[Gsoc-students] STUDENTS: Act NOW if you want to participate in Google Summer of Code and get money from Google

The deadline for student applications to Google's Summer of Code is 
MARCH 31st. That's about 24 hours from now.

So far, we've had only a tenth (!) of the number of applications we had 
last year, which is disappointing to say the least. If you're a student, 
though, this means that your application is quite likely to be accepted 
if it's any good. :)

Please see http://code.google.com/opensource/gsoc/2008/faqs.html for 
details about the program and how to submit an entry.

Please see 
for ideas about submissions we'd like to see. Other ideas are welcome as 
well, of course.

When writing a submission, all you have to do is to prove that you have 
the determination to complete the task you set out to achieve. Prior 
experience is helpful as well, but you are not expected to be an expert. 
Personal learning is definitely a part of this.
