[Reminder] Subversion a mentor for Google Summer of Code

Just a quick reminder, as it has been all over the internet for some
time.

Following last year's success, Google is hosting a 2006 edition of the
Summer of Code. Quickly put, if you're a student and get selected,
you get paid over the summer to work on a specific task within one of
dozens of mentoring open source projects. More information about the
specifics of the program are available at http://code.google.com/soc/ .

Like last year, Subversion is a mentoring organization within the SoC.
If you'd like to help further the development of Subversion, get paid,
and have fun doing so, then head over to the SoC webpage and apply!

We have compiled a list of tasks that we feel are suitable for the
timeframe of the SoC and interesting to us. The list is on the
Subversion website, at
<http://subversion.tigris.org/project_tasks.html>. This list is of
course not exhaustive, so if you have a really great idea that might
interest us, don't let our list stop you from applying.

The deadline for applying is 8th May. Yes it is soon, but it should
be enough to decide what you want to apply for, and write a short
proposal for it. Remember, the application is meant to interest us in
the task you're offering to complete, and convince us that you are
able to complete the task you propose.

No need to have finished the task beforehand, or have the deepest
possible knowledge of the Subversion internals before starting. Some
coding skills, along with a keen will to learn should do the trick!

- Dave.
