Several DSpace Committers contacted me to let me know they really want
to take part in the Google Code-In. So, I've officially put in an
application for DuraSpace -- hopefully we'll get accepted!
I've also put up a stub of a page on the GSoC Wiki. We should all
start to write up possible GCI tasks on the DSpace Wiki, and link them
up to our GCI homepage at:
Tasks must be up and posted by November 22. But, we probably should get
at least a few posted ASAP, as I imagine it will help our application :)
