Welcome to Rockbox and gsoc 2008!

Congratulations and welcome to Rockbox!

In tough competition we finally and eventually have four students and projects
for the Google Summer of Code 2008!

My hope is not only that we will get four interested students doing four
interesting projects, but that we will manage to get four motivated students
who will and can participate in Rockbox development the traditional Rockbox
way: with lots of openess and online communication. Seeing that two of the
students already have extensive Rockbox background (they have commit rights!)
I don't think this will be a problem!

Ok, so the four projects are listed below. It would be really cool if all
students could perhaps post a somewhat extended explanation for their project
and plans to the list.

Accessibility and localization improvements for Rockbox
by Thomas Ross, mentored by Daniel Stenberg
Backup mentor Stéphane Doyon

ARM Emulator
by Taylor Killian, mentored by Linus Nielsen Feltzing
Backup mentor [still missing]

Rockbox as an application on a Unix based smart phone
by Michael Giacomelli, mentored by Jonathan Gordon
Backup mentor [still missing]

WPS/Theme Editor

Backup mentor Nicolas Pennequin

Of course our sincere thanks go to Google for funding this for us!

Did I say you're welcome?
