Congratulations to all students and projects.
Even I'm happy to see 4 slots for gvSIG, I'm missing some OSGeo
projects on that list (GeoNetwork, MapServer, OpenLayers to name a
few) and I wonder why they haven't managed to enter the GSoC this
year.I know very well the effort is needed to find a
mentor/student/idea so I'll suppose that is the reason, so know my
question to the list.
There is something from the OSGeo point of view to help them to enter
The OSGeo GSoC admins have done a great job, but maybe the rest of the
membership (active ambassadors!) can do something to help projects to
get a slot on the program in some way.
