			Google Summer of Code

As many of you will already know, Google is running its "Summer of Code"
project again this year, and haskell.org is once again going to apply to
be a mentoring organisation.  Are you a student who would like to earn
money for hacking in Haskell?  Or are you a non-student who has a cool
idea for a coding project but no time to do it yourself?

Well, our wiki to gather ideas is now up-and-running again:

Add yourself to the list of interested people!  Especially potential

There are some ideas still there from last year, in the trac tickets.
However, due to the amount of spam accumulating there, I suggest that
this year, we use the haskell-cafe email list as a place to put out
project ideas, solicit feedback on them, and look for interested people.
Prefix any message subject line with with [GSoC] to help others find

Google will start accepting student applications on 24th March, but now
is the time to start gathering thoughts and matching up interesting
ideas with interested people.

 March 17: List of accepted mentoring organizations published
 March 24: Student application period opens
 March 31: Student application deadline

 Interim Period: we review and rank student proposals
