Welcome interns!

Hi all,

On Monday GNOME accepted 29 Google Summer of Code interns and 10 Outreach Program for Women interns! All the interns made a contribution to the project they were applying to work on and almost all were connected to 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, Mozilla, Collabora, Red Hat, the Free Software Foundation, and the GNOME 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! Everyone, please help out mentors from your project by also helping the participants when possible.

Because we are closing the 3.6 feature proposal period, it would be great if mentors consider proposing the planned work as a 3.6 feature. If your intern’s proposal is about a well-defined user-visible feature, the student is an experienced GNOME contributor, and/or you are dedicated to spend part of your time working on the feature, please propose it for 3.6.

Below, is the list of all the interns’ projects. The ones without a link are OPW projects. The interns will blog about their work on Planet GNOME throughout the summer.

Thanks to everyone and welcome to the interns!
Marina, on behalf of GSoC and OPW admins
