Welcome interns!

Hi all,

GNOME accepted 35 Google Summer of Code and 3 Outreach Program for Women interns! Additionally, one student 
submitted the same proposal with GNOME and with the Mono Project to work on F-Spot, and was accepted by the 
Mono Project. All the interns made a contribution to the project they were applying to work on and connected 
with their mentors during the application process. We are thrilled to have these talented and dedicated 
contributors have a chance to spend the whole summer working on GNOME! Thanks to Google, Red Hat, HP, and the 
Linux Foundation for making these internships possible!

Thank you to all the mentors who helped the applicants along the way and will guide the participants this 
summer! We are especially glad to have returning mentors Cosimo Cecchi, Izidor Matušov, and Arth Patel, as 
well as new mentors Fabiano Fidencio, Mattias Bengtsson, Giovanni Campagna, Mathieu Duponchelle, Tobias 
Mueller, and Sindhu Sundar, all of whom have participated in GSoC before (and Sindhu participated in OPW 
too)! Everyone, please help out mentors from your project by also helping the participants when possible.

Please feel free to arrange to meet with interns from your town for beer, juice, and/or hacking! (Interns, 
please feel free to reply with an update if you are in a different city this summer from where your school
