Summer of Code preview

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!

Who made Gentoo Linux, and when? A commit analysis

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.
