Hi all,

As some of you already know, I'm in the process of applying to Google's 
Summer of Code as a mentoring organisation.  Xfce applied in 2006, but 
wasn't accepted.  I don't really know why, but hopefully this year we 
can do a bit better.  To that end, I've created a few pages on our wiki, 
and people have been working on them for the past couple weeks:

Now, we won't know if we've been accepted into the program until March 
17th.  However, I'd like to generate some interest for our participation 
in the program; in particular, I'd like to get some names on that 
'students' wiki page.

So, if you don't mind, if you have a blog, or some other means of 
publishing to a group of people (via means other than spam, of course), 
could you please do a little advertising for us?  Just point out that 
we're applying to the program, we're looking for student participants, 
and give a link to our wiki page (the main 'ideas' page).
