I wrote an LWN article called “Google’s Summer of Code: Past and Future.” In it, you’ll learn:
- Why your project should apply to the program
- How big the program is likely to be this year
- A major change for the 2009 session, and
- A pointer to a valuable resource for mentors.
LWN is my favorite source for the best Linux and open-source news. They write original articles and also spend a lot of time searching all over the Internet for all the latest news so that all I have to do is read it. The reader community is fantastic, too. Subscribe to LWN today!
That’s a question a lot of people have been asking lately, with the news about the nonprofit foundation, the lack of news updates on the homepage, and the canceled release. I answer it in a short LWN article.
LWN just published my story of this name as premium content. I ran a number of analyses on Gentoo’s CVS commit history, kindly provided by Robin Johnson, to look at what happened to our developers and our commits over time. If you want to know the results now (rather than waiting until the content becomes free), subscribe to LWN—the best Linux and open-source software news.
If any of you are LWN readers and would really like to see coverage of any specific sessions or topics at OSCON, please leave a comment on here and I’ll see what I can do.
