Dear developers, contributors and users,

as in 2010 and past years, the GNU Project has been approved as a
mentoring organization for Google's Summer of Code program.

There is a list of ideas for LibreDWG[0], and elligible students are
invited to apply, either following some of the ideas or proposing
their own.

Student application period is open and the deadline is April 8 19:00
UTC. Although, we ask students to submit their proposals ASAP, even if
they are still drafts, and discuss them with the community through the
address@hidden mailing list.


About Google Summer of Code (source:

Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers student
developers stipends to write code for various open source software
projects. We have worked with several open source, free software, and
technology-related groups to identify and fund several projects over a
three month period. Since its inception in 2005, the program has
brought together over 4500 successful student participants and over
3000 mentors from over 100 countries worldwide, all for the love of
code. Through Google Summer of Code, accepted student applicants are
paired with a mentor or mentors from the participating projects, thus
gaining exposure to real-world software development scenarios and the
opportunity for employment in areas related to their academic
pursuits. In turn, the participating projects are able to more easily
identify and bring in new developers. Best of all, more source code is
created and released for the use and benefit of all.
