Hello to everyone,

I am glad to announce you that VideoLAN is a mentoring organisation for
Google Summer of code 2008.

If you are an interested student, please check the ideas for VLC and
x264 on our wiki.

http://wiki.videolan.org/SoC_2008 <= VLC ideas
http://wiki.videolan.org/SoC_x264 <= x264 ideas

Original ideas are more than welcome.

Please check the SoC timeline.

If you are an interested mentor, please contact an admin.
We will need all mentor gmail accounts.

For VLC, I would like to enforce the "1 mentor/ 1 student" rule as far as
we are able to do it. Exceptions can be discussed.

Unfortunately, we have to unforce a few rules to avoid failures and
not-serious enough students:

Those rules are flexible, especially for x264.

If you are interested in anything around SoC, please contact xtophe
(vlc), Dark_Shikari (x264) and me (vlc and other weird requests)

Everything is quite flexible, but I would like to focus on quality more
than quantity.

May the code be with you.

Jean-Baptiste Kempf
