It is that time of year again; the Google Summer of Code is upon us!

*Sign Up Information*

If you are a student and want to sign up to make $4,500 for hacking on the
code you love over the summer or are willing to help out as a mentor, now is
the time to act. Please sign up by adding your name to the list at:


I have extracted an initial list of interested mentors from Malcolm's
earlier inquiry to the cafe and have submitted our initial application to
Google. A strong list of potential mentors and students will help bolster
our case.

Our main wiki entry for the Summer of Code 2010 is now online:


If you are interested in applying as a student, here are some guidelines:


The official deadline for student applications with Google is April 7th, but
if you are interested please add your name to the People2010 page above, as
soon as possible.

*Interested in helping out, but not sure how?
There are a number of ideas that we've been collecting for projects
available through the trac


and which have been collecting over time in a reddit:


While the reddit is a great place to discuss proposals,  we had to choose
one mechanism to supply Google with our ideas officially, so please submit
proposals <http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/summer-of-code/newticket> to the
trac if you can think of something you like to work on, or which would be an
appropriately beneficial project for a summer worth of work.

*Helping Out Darcs *

Haskell.org is going to continue to act as an umbrella organization covering
darcs <http://darcs.net/> for the Summer of Code once more. If you are
interested in helping them out, they also have a page full of project ideas
as well:


Again, please submit
tickets to the trac if you can think of something you'd like to work

Of course, you can always feel free to email me <ekmett at gmail.com> or

Thank you all very much and we look forward to another successful Summer of
