I can help with this, but I don’t have a clue what the rules are
fororganizations. I can ask around inside of Google if I need to.
Atthe very least, the sponsoring organization needs to exist as a
legalentity, because they get paid $500 per project that is completed.
Worst-case, Google itself can sponsor the project and I can act as
amentor. If anyone has any good project ideas that would be good for
asummer’s worth of programming, let me know.
Although, frankly, I suspect that someone could start from scratch
andre-implement all of Typo in less time then that :-).
