The FreeBSD Project is happy to again participate in Google's Summer
of Code program.  This program provides $4500 in funding to allow
students to spend the summer writing open source software.  If you or
someone you know would be interested in this program, please visit our
website at :


There you will find a large list of interesting projects in diverse
areas of modern Unix operating system development.  Some example tasks
involve writing a TCP/IP regression test suite, working on the USB and
Firewire kernel support, improving the IPv6 support in userland
utilities, and much more.

You will also find a list of senior developers who have agreed to act
as mentors to interested students.  Once you have identified a project
and a mentor, you should complete a proposal and submit it to Google
before the March 24 deadline.
