Congratulations to our accepted students!

All told, we had 52 applications submitted for the 6 slots (5 originally 
assigned, plus 1 extra) allotted to us by Google.  Proposals were 
extremely competitive: 6 out of 52 translates to an 11.5% acceptance 
rate.  We received a lot of really excellent proposals, the decisions 
were not easy.

Thanks very much to all the students who applied, we very much 
appreciate your hard work.

Here's to a great 2010 Summer of Code, I'm sure these students will do 
some wonderful work.
