Welcome to GSoC 2010 and congratulations!
The next steps for our students:
- please introduce yourself on this mailing list.
- make yourself familiar with the community and the code relating to
- make contact with your mentors.
- create a wiki page to describe your project and document progress.
A word to all the students who didn't make it:
We would like to thank you all for applying! 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 feel free
to ask us. We would, of course, appreciate it if you choose to continue
with your project even if you were not chosen, and we would be happy to
help you with this.
We wish all our students a successful and productive summer.
