Hello everyone! This list hasn't been used in awhile, so should you no 
longer wish to receive emails about ubuntu and google summer of code and 
google code in, please feel free to unsubscribe. You can do so at

For those still interested, we are reviving this list in order to 
communicate and coordinate our efforts around Google Code In (and 
fingers crossed, perhaps google summer of code again next year). For 
now, we have been accepted as an organization in GCI, which starts next 
Monday. You can find out more information on the community site,

We are currently still recruiting mentors to add tasks and help 
introduce students to the wonderful world of open source. For those of 
you who have participated in google summer of code efforts in the past, 
do note GCI is much less intense, and does not involve the direct 
mentoring like GSOC. Instead, GCI is focused on short tasks, that are 
intended to be largely self-sufficient, with the mentor providing some 
assistance and then ultimately reviewing the work. If you want to learn 
more about being a mentor, check out the wiki page:

In addition to this mailing list, we have setup the IRC channel of 
#ubuntu-google on freenode for use to discuss GCI and potential efforts 
for GSOC next year.

We'd love to have your thoughts, help and participation in this 
endeavor. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks!
