Google has just announced the summer of code program for this summer
(http://code.google.com/soc/2008/). This will be the fourth summer they
are running the program. SOC is an opportunity for various open source
software projects to get students to work on project's of interest with
Google paying the student a fairly nice summer stipend and a smaller
stipend to the mentoring organization.
I am more than happy to coordinate this effort and to deal with the
paperwork if others think it's worthwhile. (Obviously I do or else I
wouldn't be mentioning it on the list :) The first step IMNSHO is to
brainstorm several tasks we would want a student to work on. Obviously
working on the Lua core is out, but there are a lot of other
possibilities. In fact, helping to develop almost any of the projects
at Lua Forge are good candidates.
The benefits are as follows: good exposure for Lua (ok, only a benefit
if you think Lua should be exposed :), good experience for student(s),
and the opportunity for moving some pet project forward.
