We didn't make it this year.
I want to thank all the people who submitted (and keep submitting) ideas for
our Google Code-In wiki page:
In total I got 61 ideas over e-mail from the web form (lessons learnt: for
GSOC, we should also have a web form) All of them should be on the Wiki now.
I suggest we keep collecting good ideas and try to make sure this years GSOC
will be successful.
On the other note--NetBSD guys are in Google Code-In..
