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 $5,000 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:


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 8th, 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:


<http://www.reddit.com/r/haskell_proposals/top/>Unfortunately, reddit
doesn't let you comment on topics after they become archived, and most of
the topics in the haskell_proposals reddit have been.

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 once you have hashed out 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 <http://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
proposals<http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/summer-of-code/newticket> as
tickets to the trac if you can think of something you'd like to work on.
