DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2008-04
Summer of Code accepted proposals
Google listed the accepted proposals today!
For accepted students (and mentors):
We are now in the Community Bonding Period. This is where students get
involved with DragonFly. Get on kernel@, get on #dragonflybsd on EFnet,
start talking about projects.
Google has more about this time period:
This is the time to ask questions about tools and styles, features and
ideas, and so on.
For students who didn't make the cut:
We'd still like to see your work. We had a number of original proposals;
the hard limit was the number of mentors. Patches and conversations with
students who aren't in GSoC at this point is welcome.
Here's the list of what made it in. The proposals are available at the
Google SoC website page linked above.
