It's a wonderful program to be involved in, and Hilmar did a wonderful
job last year organizing everything. I encourage anyone interested to
apply as a student or take on the role of a mentor; GSoC is a great
opportunity both as a mentor and as a student. Not to mention Mira
Han also wrote a wonderful bit of code (the phyloxml parser and
related modules), and we all got great T-shirts!
Hilmar, is there a particular focus on projects this year? I think
Google announced earlier than normal to allow a bit more time for
abstracts and such.
