The PSF is participating in the Google Summer of Code (SoC) program and has 
received 221 applications from students looking to do summer projects in 
open source (in our case with/for Python) in return for $4500 awards upon 
completion of their project.  We will be accepting 20-30 of these.

Each student needs to be paired with a mentor that can help them with 
questions and problems that come up during their work.

Mentors have the option of being paid $500 of their work, although this 
payment can be declined to allow it to go to the PSF instead. The time 
commitment is probably on the order of a few hours per week per student 
(you can mentor more than one) for the rest of the summer.

Details on SoC are here:


If you are interested in helping out, please contact David Ascher by email 
(cc-ed on this message).

Availability of a mentor appropriate for a project is an important part of 
the process of ranking and accepting and rejecting proposals.  The final 
proposal ranking is in progress so if you're interested, please don't
