+To be more humanity!
+June 25, 2005 - 2:35PM EDT
+By now, everyone who applied for a spot in the Summer of Code has received an official response from Google. Those that were accepted will be receiving a personal introduction letter from me this weekend. I can't stress enough how pleased we were by the overwhelming interest in working on Gaim. We received 859 applications, more than any other organization except Google itself, about 10% of all applications total. We regret that we are only able to accomodate 15.
+It was really a really difficult process, choosing just 15 from 859, and we unfortunately had to turn down a lot of really high quality applications. This was especially the case for those who applied for the suggestions we made; the vast majority did this and each was necessarily competing against hundreds for just one spot while those who applied with an original idea were competing against about 50 for 15 spots (Hint for next time!).
+Also, I'd like to congratulate Gaim developer Ethan Blanton and his bride Marina who are getting married today!
New summer of code suggestion!
June 11, 2005 - 2:38PM EDT
We've posted a new suggestion for a Summer of Code project! It's a project to improve Gaim's user interface. The suggestion can be found at the bottom of our <a href="http://gaim.sourceforge.net/summerofcode/">Summer of Code project list</a>. Remember, applications are due by June 14th!
