Whoo-hoo!  You can, after all, get sponsored by Google to hack on
Tahoe this summer!  Thanks to the Python Software Foundation a small
number of lucky students might get a Google sponsorship for a project
this summer.

However, you must act now!  Here's what you do:

1.  Examine http://allmydata.org/trac/tahoe/wiki/GSoCIdeas and
http://wiki.python.org/moin/SummerOfCode/2009 and choose which project
or projects seem the most interesting to you.

2.  Send e-mail to the Tahoe Mentors listed at the bottom of
http://allmydata.org/trac/tahoe/wiki/GSoCIdeas saying that you are a
student interested in summer of code.  (Just e-mail all five of us
with Cc:.)

3.  Register yourself on the Google Summer of Code site and submit an
application: http://socghop.appspot.com/document/show/program/google/gsoc2009/faqs#student_apply

It is important to note that your application has to be submitted by
Friday, March 3, 2009, 12 noon PDT / 19:00 UTC, which is about 45
hours from when I write this.  However, your application can be
updated after that point (until April 15), so what you need to do
right away for Step 3 is mostly just state your name, which project
you want to hack on, and the fact that Python Software Foundation is
the organization.

Get cracking!
