I am pleased to announce that haskell.org has once again been accepted  
as a mentoring organisation, for the 2009 Google Summer of Code.   
Student applications open on Monday (23rd March) at 1900 UTC, for a  
period of 12 days (until Fri 3rd April, also at 1900 UTC).

Students applicants are encouraged to interact with the community via  
mailing lists, prior, during, and after the submission of their ideas  
for projects.
In general terms, project ideas that benefit the whole community (e.g.  
infrastructure like ghc, cabal, libraries) will be preferred over  
things of more marginal interest (e.g. games).  Unless you make a  
_really_ good case, of course!

Because (sadly) the darcs community did not get accepted as a separate  
organisation this year, haskell.org will be willing to accept  
proposals relating to darcs (as it has done in previous years), but of  
course they will be competing in the general pool, alongside all the  
other ideas.

Also, we are still accepting mentors.
