Welcome to GSoC 2009 and congratulations!
The next steps for our students:
- please introduce yourself here.
- make yourself familiar with the community and the code in question.
- make contact with your mentors.
- create a Wikipage to describe your project and document progress.
A word to all the students who didn't make it:
We would like to thank you for applying, and if you have any questions
about why your project wasn't amongst those chosen, or how you can
improve your odds if you apply to Rockbox next year, please let us know.
We would of course appreciate it if you choose to continue with your
project even if your are not chosen, and we would be happy to help you
We wish all our students a successful and productive summer.
