Summer of Code 2010: Accepted Ubuntu projects

Google just announced the projects that were accepted. So what’s next?

If your project is on the list, you’re now entering the community bonding period (until May 24th). This means that you’re not expected to hack on the project right now, but get to know the project and how it works. This is how Google puts it: “Rather than jumping straight into coding, you’ve got some time to learn about your organization’s processes - release and otherwise - developer interactions, codes of conduct, etc. We also figured it would be easier to socially engage with your fellow developers when the pressure to ship isn’t looming in your vision. I know few folks who didn’t lurk in a project’s IRC channel for weeks or even months before submitting their first patch, let alone saying hello and getting to know the other folks in the channel.”
