Hello everyone,

Google Summer of Code 2009 is on! We are now accepting applications [0] from
Free and Open Source software projects that would like to act as mentoring
organizations for the program, and the application deadline is March 13th.
We will begin accepting student applications on March 23rd.

Make sure to read our Frequently Asked Questions [1] and User's Guide [2]
before applying.

***Very Important:***
Google App Engine will be down for planned maintenance from 1:00 - 5:00 UTC
on March 10, 2009. During this time, no applications can be submitted. You
may also notice some slowness with the Google Summer of Code 2009 site [3] ,
which should be corrected after this planned maintenance. You are welcome to
wait until after the maintenance window to submit your application, as the
time when it is submitted has no effect on your chances for acceptance.
(Unless of course you don't apply before the deadline, in which case you are
guaranteed not be accepted. :)

***Even More Important:***
While we encourage students applicants to begin talking with would-be
mentoring organizations sooner rather than later, it is important to
reiterate that there is no guarantee that any particular organization will
be accepted. We will announce the list of accepted organizations on the 2009
program site on March 18th. It is also very important to note that even once
an organization is accepted, they cannot guarantee that any student will be
accepted into the program. The list of accepted students will be announced
on the 2009 program site on April 20th. To be very clear, until these
announcements are made, *nothing* is final, guaranteed, etc.

We are hanging out in #gsoc if you have questions. Please make sure to take
a look at the documentation before pinging.

Best of luck to all of our applicants. Our fifth Google Summer of Code is
