<toc-add-entry name="gsoc">Welcome to Debian GSoC Students!</toc-add-entry>

The Debian project is proud to announce that 
<a href="http://bits.debian.org/2013/05/welcome-gsoc-students-2013.html";>this
year, 16 students have been accepted into the Google Summer of Code program</a>
to work on improving Debian. This is the highest number of students accepted
since Debian started participating in this program.

The list of selected students and projects they're working is 
<a href="http://bits.debian.org/2013/05/welcome-gsoc-students-2013.html";>publicly</a>
<a href="http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/org/google/gsoc2013/debian";>available</a>.

If you are interested in one of these projects, you are encouraged to come and
join the #debian-soc IRC channel, or to contact the students and their
mentors directly.

<toc-add-entry name="opw">Outreach Program for Women, the result of the experiment</toc-add-entry>

Mònica Ramírez Arceda <a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-project/2013/06/msg00002.html";>announced
the result</a> of Debian participation in the
<a href="http://wiki.debian.org/OutreachProgramForWomen";>Outreach Program for
Women</a>. One of the four applicants was accepted, but also received a
slot for the Google Summer of Code. As a consequence, this internship was not used.
Since the Outreach Program for Women is run twice a year, Mònica has opened the
discussion about further Debian participation with a call for more volunteers.
Join the #debian-opw IRC channel if you are willing to help with this initiative.

<toc-add-entry name="dplbits">Bits from the DPL</toc-add-entry>

Lucas Nussbaum sent his
<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2013/06/msg00000.html";>monthly
report of DPL activities for May 2013</a>. Among other things, Lucas reminded
readers that it could still be possible to submit talks for
<a href="http://debconf13.debconf.org/";>DebConf13, in Vaumarcus, Switzerland</a>,
and called for the creation of a Debian trademark team, handling the trademark use
requests that are being received following the publication of the
<a href="$(HOME)/trademark#policy">Debian trademark policy</a>. He also
mentioned that discussions which occurred during the last DPL campaign have
been summarised by Brian Gupta on a
<a href="http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DPL/Ideas";>dedicated
page of the Debian Wiki</a>, and encouraged people to contribute to maintaining
this page when ideas are raised on Debian lists.

<toc-add-entry name="dmo">Expiration of debian-multimedia.org</toc-add-entry>

debian-multimedia.org was a popular unofficial repository of Debian
packages. Last year, this service moved to a new domain, and despite efforts
from Debian, the debian-multimedia.org domain recently expired, and has now
been registered by someone unknown to Debian.

<q>This is a good example of the importance of the use of cryptography to secure
APT repositories</q>,
<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2013/06/msg00000.html";>DPL
Lucas Nussbaum said</a>.

The Debian project would like to emphasise the need to consider possible
security issues when using third-party repositories and the importance of not
blindly adding keys to the APT keyring.
