[CentOS-devel] GSoC & CentOS - not this year

Sorry to hear that.  I'm guessing there are any number of orgs that
did get accepted who would love to support a well written CentOS+X
proposal though, especially if CentOS devs were willing to help mentor
from the other direction a bit.

Ceph was accepted this year, and I'd love it if some of the proposals
we got from students included another open source project like CentOS
as a part of their submission.  Happy to put another item on our ideas
page if anyone has specific suggestions.

If anyone else on this list got accepted to GSoC I'd also urge you to
chime in here so we can build a little discussion that might yield a
good CentOS crossover.

Best of luck next year as an org though, the date does sneak up on you.

Best Regards,
