Fotis raised an important point here, that is equally valid for all GSoC
students as well as any other contributors, so that surely warrants a
public mention, so taking this to the bug-hurd mailing list:

Thanks for this positive attitude to software development apprenticeship
and generally personal/professional development!

If you are interested, and as you seem to like to read a lot ;-), I may
as well recommend a book covering that very topic: »Apprenticeship
Patterns, Guidance for the Aspiring Software Craftsman«, Dave Hoover,
Adewale Oshineye, O'Reilly Media, 2009,
<http://shop.oreilly.com/product/9780596518387.do>.  I've read this last
summer (at a beach in Sanya, China, heh), and found it described very
many of the patterns that we're using in our open software development
models.  Was a good read, so I'm happy to recommend it.  Per
this is also available for non-paper, free-of-charge online reading,
covered by a Creative Commons license.
