Summer, Summer, Summer
Let me be the last to announce that Google Summer of Code
results are out. Just click on organization names to see their accepted projects. In GNOME
twenty projects. Vincent
already wrote about it; the selection involved a few days of tough and lengthy discussions, on IRC and on mailing list, plus a closed election.
Anyway, we are all very excited about the chosen projects. I personally am the happy mentor of mathrick implementing Vertical Writing Support for Pango
. Projects I really liked we could accept but we didn't were (in order of missing)
Advanced OpenType and AAT Font Features for Pango
. I'll be contacting those students (of which two are regular GNOME contributors) to see if they are interested in working on these out of Summer of Code.
I would like to specially thank Kosai (Chris Ball)
and kikidonk (Raphaël Slinckx)
for helping Vincent and I manage the GNOME side, and to Chris DiBona
for the Google
side of the thing.
And I know it's Summer when I fix the bike and get out cycling...
