Google Summer of Code

We applied up to become a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2008, and on this page we collected ideas that could serve as starting points when students want to write up a project idea for curl!

However, we were not lucky enough to be one of the selected organizations when Google announced the accepted ones on March 17 2008. The not accepted status is without motivation so we can only guess why this happened: too small/informal organization? Too crappy ideas page? Too few existing mentors listed? I don't think the actual application form was bad since it was very similar to the one I used for another project that was accepted...
