Re: Google Summer of Code

Hi Alexander,

I followed your advice and put the statement about Summer of code as an opener line, you can see what I've written below.  I referenced Erich Schubert blog where he has posted that we received 13 slots, but we can easily change that to a link to the Press Release if you get the okay to issue the press release before the next DPN goes out.

From the Opener Section of DPN
Erich Schubert announced[1] that Debian has received 13 slots in this years  Google Summer of Code [2].

[2] http://code.google.com/soc/2008/debian/about.html

Does that work for you?

 I noticed some of you adding a note about Googles Summer of Code to the
DPN.  Good that you catched that, but actually it is planed to send out
a seperate news about that; draft is available at

Current status is, that we can't send it out yet, sine  there might be
small problems with two of the students :(

(Steve McIntyre is looking at that problem, hopefully I'll get his okay
to send it out soon.)

(Sorry couldn't tell you much sooner, because Google ask to not yet make
it public.)

Therefore I would propose to mention GSoC in the "opener" at link to
our (then hopefully send out) Announcement.

Yours sincerely,
