Dear QEMU, KVM, and rust-vmm community,
QEMU will apply for Google Summer of Code
(https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/) again this year.  This internship
program offers paid, 10-week, remote work internships for
contributing to open source.  QEMU can act as an umbrella organization
for KVM kernel and rust-vmm projects too.

Please post project ideas on the QEMU wiki before February 14th:

What's new this year:
 * The number of internship hours has been halved to 175 hours over
   10 weeks. Project ideas must be smaller to fit and students will have
   more flexibility with their working hours.
 * Eligibility has been expanded to include "licensed coding school or
   similar type of program".

Good project ideas are suitable for 175 hours (10 weeks half-day) work by a
competent programmer who is not yet familiar with the codebase.  In
addition, they are:
 * Well-defined - the scope is clear
 * Self-contained - there are few dependencies
 * Uncontroversial - they are acceptable to the community
 * Incremental - they produce deliverables along the way

Feel free to post ideas even if you are unable to mentor the project.
It doesn't hurt to share the idea!

I will review project ideas and keep you up-to-date on QEMU's
acceptance into GSoC.
