I haven't seen any threads about this, so here goes.

Google Summer of Code 2011 is now accepting submissions! To participate, a so-called mentoring organization has to:

- Submit an ideas list by March 11th
- Have an administrator available who can appoint a mentor, respond to inquiries within 48 hours, ensure deadlines are met
- Have a mentor (if one drops out the administrator can appoint a new one) to review code and answer questions for the student (the mentor can also be a group of people)

The organization does not have to be a legal entity, an open-source project like Bitcoin is fine.

So, do we have several ideas suitable for a GSoC project? Secondly, to the senior developers here: Are any of you available to act as our representative to Google?

Good idea, not only would this bring more development resources to bitcoin but also a lot of publicity.

From past experience other projects I worked on tried to use summer of code to recruit outside developers. Mostly it turned into fail because these devs would leave after it ended dumping a mass of incomplete code they didn't maintain.

If this is done then I suggest recruiting from the ranks of developers already working in or around bitcoin.
