The Google Summer of Code has been a wildly successful program by  
Google for fostering Open Source projects over the past two years.  I  
think it should be a goal of GDAL to participate this year, and I am  
throwing my hat in the ring to act as a mentor for any students who  
would wish to participate by submitting development projects to SOC.

You can find the FAQ about the SOC here: <http://code.google.com/ 
support/bin/topic.py?topic=10442>.  Initially, we are looking for  
students who are willing to work on GDAL/OGR through the summer.   
Once we find some candidates, we will brainstorm on some ideas that  
could be done over the three month timeframe of SOC.  After we hone  
down our list, we will submit our projects and cross our fingers :)

If you know of any students who might be interested, or are one  
yourself, please contact me directly.
