Yes, we have applied to Google's Summer of Code again this year. We
do not know if we will be accepted, or how many students will be
alloted for us. Google will announce the list of accepted mentoring
organizations for 2010 on March 18th.
There are some potential projects listed at
http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/FutureSOCProjects or you're free to
come up with your own idea. Some of our best projects in the past
have been original ideas from students.
I encourage you to check the Google Summer of Code website after March
18th and, assuming we're accepted, submit an application!
