the TurboGears team is very happy to announce that the project has been
accepted as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2008 mentoring organization.
This means that we are looking for students who are interested in
working on a TurboGears related project over the Summer and want to
become part of the avant-garde that is Python web development and Open
Source! Students who get accepted to the program will receive a US$
4,500 stipend over the course of the program!
We have listed a number of very interesting project suggestions
on our GSoC ideas page on the wiki . If you want to work with the
TurboGears project, please go there and look for anything that kindles
you programming-itch or feel free to come up with your own project ideas
and discuss them with our mentors on the development mailing list! 
Student applications open next Monday, March 24 and end a week later on
Monday, March 31, 2008, so hurry up and get your project proposal and
application ready now!
If you are not a student, you can still get involved by becoming a
mentor or by us helping spread the word and attracting potential student
partipiciants. Watch out on the TurboGears mailing list  for a follow
up "Help wanted!" post, which will list a few ideas on how to promote
the GSoC idea and the TurboGears GSoC participation. In the meantime,
you can go to our central TurboGears GSoC page  for more information
This is a fantastic opportunity for both students and the TurboGears
project. We hope that with the help of the students, Google, our GSoC
team and (who knows?) you, we can have a big share in advancing the
evolution of Python web frameworks!
Let there be code!
