Summer of Code 2006
For a second year in a row, Google is paying hundreds of students to spend their summer contributing to open source projects. This is known as Summer of Code 2006. The Python Software Foundation is a mentoring organisation that is the beneficiary of 25 Summer of Code projects. Continuing on my streak of luck with Python, I am mentoring Johannes Woolard, a promising student whose project was accepted in this Summer of Code competition. Johannes has a blog, and has already started working on his project. Within the span of a day or two, he has already removed the CherryPy dependency of Crunchy Frog, which was one of my longer-term objective - but something I didn't know how to do. Kudos to Johannes!
