Hi all --

I think many of you know this already but I just wanted to confirm it.

The Google Summer of Code program has rejected Ruby Central this year as
a mentoring organization, a role we've played every year since 2006. No
explanation for the rejection was offered. (When I pressed for an
explanation, I got a courteous response but no substantive information
about their decision.)

I find this very disappointing, and I'm sorry to have to bring the news
to those of you who had started to give serious thought to Summer of
Code projects.


David

This is disappointing, but not a death knell for interested students
and mentors. Rails is acting as a mentoring organization and we'd be
happy to join forces to get awesome but peripherally Rails-related
projects going this summer as well.

For example, last summer's rubyspec push was a great success.
Continuing that work for ruby 1.9 would be a boon to the whole
community. Similarly with debugging, profiling, and other tooling.

So keep your engines fired up! Dedicated mentors from years past are
particularly welcome :)

Best,
jeremy
