Summer of Code

Yesterday Google announced the Summer of Code initiative, where students can receive a $4500 award for completing an open source project by the end of Summer.

Various open source organizations are participating by proposing projects and providing mentors, and the ASF has started a list of projects which will certainly grow in the next few days.

I have suggested one project about Automatic generation of XML-based reference documentation, using Cocoon to generate reference docs for itself or other projects. This is something that I’ve been working on lately with the help of a yet mysterious Doktor, and it would be a really cool way of generating docs without having to duplicate information. I hope to have more details soon, we’ll talk about it when I have actual code to show.

    I looked to the Summer of Code from Google after “heise newsticker” have a artikel about it (more or less at the same time as you posted yours ;-) ).

    Yesterday they hadn’t a lot of intresting projects in Java. But yours sound realy intresting (have found it on the apache website befor I read your post). Today there are also a lot of other intresting projects.

    Perhaps I will do one of this projects in the summer (when I will accepted for one).
