We’ve got 3 projects for Google Summer of Code 2010:
- “Device Mapper based Logical Volume Management”, by Alexander Hornung and mentored by Chuck Tuffli.
- “Porting kernel mode-setting, GEM and KMS, to DragonFlyBSD” by David Shao, mentored by Matthew Dillon
- “Coalesce + MPSAFE kevent, select, poll and wakeup” by Samuel Greear, mentored by Joe Talbott
We had a good number of excellent proposals, but only 3 slots from Google. There were only 12 spare slots by the end of the proposal period, too, meaning less than 1 spare per 10 organizations. I’d encourage people that applied and didn’t get in to still try the work; there were some neat proposals!
