I’m not exactly sure who the best person to send this idea to would be,
am just sending it to this list. My apologies if it does not belong on
here. Google just announced their 2006 Summer of Code, and they are
for mentor organizations. I am going to apply, and I would really love
work on something Ruby-related, such as Typo, and I’m sure there are
people with the same attitude. I am not exactly sure of the rules for
organizations, but I think it would at least be worth looking into.
Here is the link to the Mentor FAQ:
P.S. I see that as of today, Ruby Central has registered as an
organization, and is looking for ideas and mentors. I’m not sure if
could/would want to go through them but it is an idea.
