We just got word that our application for Google Summer of Code for
this year was not accepted.

I'll admit to being not very surprised - I was counting on our recent
changes toward a more open contributor project to make up for not
having been able to do a lot of preparation for the application.

We'll get this on our calendar for the next year so we're ahead of the
curve. Part of that will be continuing to keep track of ideas as a
community, get those on to a wiki page for 2015, and keep recruiting
mentors. (I suspect our lack of a long list of ideas and mentors to be
the biggest weakness in our application.)

Thanks everyone for the help in rushing to get the application done in
time - I think it was a pretty good application, maybe not strong
enough. I also respect that the Google have a lot to keep balanced, it
may have nothing to do with our shortcomings in the end.
