Google have just published their list of accepted mentoring organisations for Summer of Code 2011, but Ubuntu isn't listed there. Jono Bacon has confirmed that Ubuntu applied for a position, so I can only conclude that the application was unsuccessful. Can anyone clarify whether or not this is the case?
As far as I know Ubuntu did not get through. It is not there in the list.
Ubuntu got through last year(2010) where we had a few projects (one I can remember was Harvest)
In 2010 openSUSE did not get through. They got through this year.
Ubuntu did not get through in 2009.
This all fine. Ubuntu is a pretty big project. GSoC is a initiative to boost FOSS mentality.
This time Google themselves said that smaller organizations should also apply. Looks like Google thought that Ubuntu doesn't need GSoC students.
