Debian's Google Summer of Code 2013 Wrap-up

Hi everyone,

Debian participated in Google Summer of Code this year (our eighth
year!) with sixteen projects. We are very happy to report that fifteen
projects finished successfully, with some of the students greatly
exceeding our expectations. This has been a very successful year for us:
not only did we have one of the highest pass rates (15/16) in our
participation history, but we managed to send seven students to DebConf
— the most ever!

We would like to thank everybody involved in the program — the thirty
mentors, sixteen students, and the DebConf team — for making this a
success. We have been told by many students that they will continue
their projects or will get involved in other areas of Debian even after
the summer and we consider this to be the most significant achievement
of our participation.

The student applications are available at:
