A few minutes ago the GSoC application deadline for students has passed. I thought I’d give a quick update of where we are at. But first of all I wanted to thank our 13 mentors from across the Xen developer community for working closely with students intending to apply. We have received 30 applications, a large proportion are of very high quality. Students applied to work on 13 of the 20 projects we listed. Some projects had up to 5 applications.
In the next 2 weeks, we will be evaluating the proposals and will be allocated a number of slots for projects by Google. However, we won’t know which proposals are accepted until Google announces accepted student proposals on April 25th.
I wish the best of luck to the students who applied and a big thank you again to our mentors.
