Summer of Code 2007

This wiki page is created to make it easier to plan and coordinate Debian's involvement in the Google Summer of Code 2007.

Final summary

This year all students finished their projects. All information including what each of them did can be found at:


See also next year's program : SummerOfCode2008

Current Status (2007-04-12)


see Timeline in Google's FAQ

Mailing list

Now that we're getting into the process, we're using a mailing list to organise things. Details are at http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/soc-coordination . All mentors should already be signed up, and students will be added when project decisions have been made (if they're not already subscribed by then).

This year's projects

More details coming soon on each one...

Infrastructure Provided to Students

As development must happen in the open, students of Debian projects will either receive access to existing source control repositories or setup an Alioth project. Alioth is a ?SourceForge like resource provided by Debian with access to Subversion/Arch/CVS repositories and services like bug tracking and mailing lists. The students are also expected to maintain a webpage or a wiki page to keep everyone up to date on their status.
