Wikimedia's been accepted as a mentoring organization for the 2007
Google Summer of Code program.

Here's our organization page:

I put up an initial project list here:

It's semi-protected so it won't be too vandalized ;) but additional
suggestions are welcome. I'd like to ask that people who aren't directly
involved in development not add too much to the main page directly,
though; last year we ended up with lots of project submissions for
things that weren't really considered high priority, so I'd like to keep
the list a little more ordered this time.

We don't know for sure how many projects we'll get assigned, so we'll
see. :) At least Tim and I will serve as mentors for the student
projects; if a couple more experienced developers would like to help out
with that too that would be super.

Last year's projects went really well up to the public demo stage but
never quite got integrated into the mainline; I'm hoping that this year
we can stick with projects that will be easier to slip in and take live
much earlier in the process, which should help keep the students
interested and the projects active.
