If you (or someone you know) are a student interested in participating in
Google's Summer of Code 2009 program -- especially if you want to improve
Subversion while doing so (hint, hint) -- now is the time to apply for the
program. Leslie Hawthorn's post to the Google Open Source blog[1] says the

   Students, want to gain real world software engineering experience and
   get paid? We are now accepting applications for Google Summer of
   CodeTM 2009, our global program to introduce university students to
   the wonderful world of Open Source development. For our fifth Summer
   of Code, students can choose from 150 Free and Open Source software
   projects, in technical areas as diverse as gaming to humanitarian
   efforts to operating system design. All accepted students will be
   paired with a mentor from academia or industry and will receive
   coaching in all aspects of software development over the course of
   their three month coding project. Successful students will receive a
   stipend of 4500 USD for their participation in the program.

   Check out the program Frequently Asked Questions and the extensive set
   of resources for student applicants on the program wiki, then talk to
   your prospective mentors about your ideas. Each mentoring organization
   has provided an ideas list to help get your creative juices flowing
   and learn more about what the project needs. Our mentors are also very
   excited to hear from students who have their own plans for improving
   their code bases, so let their ideas inspire rather than constrain

   You can find knowledgeable folks on hand to answer questions in #gsoc
   on Freenode and on the program discussion list, or you can keep up
   with our announcements on various social networking sites.

   We'll be accepting student applications through April 3, 2009 at 19:00
   UTC. Best of luck to all of our student applicants, and get those
   applications going!

Good luck in the application process! We (the Subversion team) look forward
to working with you.
