Hi all,

As you should be now know Ubuntu is once again participating in the
Google Summer of Code [1].

I have created a new SoC 2006 wiki cover page [2], please check there
for further updates and information.

Current Status

We now have 15 registered mentors. We could do with a few more, as we
are expecting to get 20 projects this year. Please sign up as a mentor
[3] if you are willing and able to assist.

We could still do with some more good project ideas - the more detailed
the better. If you have a project idea, and would like it to be
considered, please add a project headings with a brief description to
our Ideas Page [4].

Last but by no means least we need STUDENTS! Bright, motivated (and
eligible) students should be applying for the projects *NOW*.

If you are a registered student and are over 18 years of age (read the
student FAQ [5]for full list of requirements), you can apply for one of
the projects. 

*** Hurry applications close on Monday 8 May 2006.***
Apply here:

We would like to select students who are enthusiastic about
our projects and are able to commit the time and energy required to make
them successful. Please make your applications detailed and give us
enough information to be able to make an intelligent selection. Remember
that being selected is a privilege and a great opportunity. The
more you commit, the greater your chance of a fantastic reward at the
end. Additionally if it is really good your code might be included
in Ubuntu!



Feel free to contact me if you require any further information.
