First of all, congratulations to our six student who will be working on
projects within Fedora in Google Summer of Code! Contrary to the slashdot
story from earlier this week ;), we had six students accepted:
* Arun Scaria -- SUDO support in SSSD. mentored by sgallagh and jraquino
* dehydrogenaza -- Educational Application for Fedora Robotics Suite, mentored
* Harshard Shirwadkar -- Revert to snapshot feature in Ext4 file system,
mentored by Amir Goldstein and OpenNode
* Hiemanshu Sharma -- Fedora Events System, mentored by Juan Rodriguez
* Kevin Kofler -- KDE Plasma Dependency Generation and PackageKit Integration,
mentored by Rex Dieter
* Ankur Sinha -- Fedora Medical, mentored by Susmit
Everyone's going to kick butt this summer!
A few notes: Make sure everyone is in contact with their mentors, and that you
guys are spending time figuring out how this summer is going to work, how well
you will be working with your mentor, when you can get together to talk,
Second, i'd like to see our six students blogging on Planet Fedora about what
they are working on, and be able to provide semiregular updates on their
progress. I'd say that at least half of you are already on planet, but the
rest should look at adding themselves: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Planet

What do you think?
BTW, I submit this to redhat-summer and they did not approve it at their
Ahmed Hassan <Ahmed(a)Linuxism.com>
I'm Sergey Ivanov, I'd like to be a mentor for the proposal "Hot File
system Backup using Ext4 Snapshots". Freenode IRC Nick: seriv.
I work in OmniTI as a system administrator. I'd like to have good
snapshots with means to serialize the changes made on the filesystem
between them and to send/receive these from one filesystem to anothen
on linux. I use this every day in solaris on zfs and miss it in
linux. I was a packager in Altlinux team (dovecot, reiser4...), and
helped by testing and benchmarking filesystems.
If I need to send more details or information, please tell what and
where to supply.
