March 2009

Greetings everyone. We have been accepted into the marvelous Google Summer of Code 2009 program again. Let’s celebrate for a moment while thinking of how to make the most of the next four months starting with the student selection and proceeding through the community bonding time on to the actual projects through their successful completion. Scribus Team needs your help to make this a successful Summer of Code. Please spread the word, so qualified and interested students could find us and get connected with the community – meaning you – and with the ideas they could work on. Our wiki is open and our hearts are full of joy. This is going to be fun, people!

Alex, your friendly Scribus Team GSoC 2009 Admin
