Hi there,

For those who don't know it yet: Google's Summer of Code,
<URL:http://code.google.com/soc/>, is a project organized by Google where
capable students can sign up to work on tasks (software projects) that
are offered my mentoring parties.  A pecuniary aid is also involved.  See
the above URL for details (or ask me).

The GNU project is participating in this year's Summer of Code, which
leads to question if the Hurd project, being part of the GNU project, is
also going to offer some tasks and evaluate tasks which might possibly be
submitted by the potential workmen themselves.

I could imagine handling the task of mentoring with the help of the whole
Hurd community.  That is, I'd be the official mentor for the projects
we're going to submit.  But for sure I'll need a backup who would at
least care at the times I won't be available, especially for two weeks in
August (which is near the end of the project), which I'll most probably
spend with a concert band in Canada, perhaps without any possibilities to
work on the Summer of Code stuff.

Who could also imagine being a mentor for the Summer of Code?
Possible projects I thought about submitting include `libchannel',
`pfinet rewrite', `nfs / nfsd rewrite / enhancement', `GNU Mach on Xen'.

I'm already assigned to some gnumach non-official projects, like gnumach revival and some others, by the way the most part of them are stalled because there is few people avaiable to work on it. So, I think SoC is a great opportunity to me and many others try to write something _real_ useful for the GNU/Hurd project.

Anyways I would like to submit some proposal around GNU/Hurd or GNUMach for SoC but I think its very important have a mentor to coordenate and help the students in the project. Currently I can spend 3 hours per day on this task so, I think we need more people involved to have success.

If you have ideas for other projects, please don't hesitate to tell me.
It is also possible that you come up with suggestions for projects which
you then consider yourself applying for.

Well, I think could be nice if we can improve gnumach IPC performace but I'm not sure if this is technically possible.

Please hurry up with your answers; the deadline for submitting the
proposals is quickly getting nearer.

I'm waiting for reply's!
