The Google Summer of Code students got chosen 2 weeks ago, and I am pleased to list the 21 projects being done under the Mozilla banner – a new high for the Mozilla project. The name of each student is linked to the location where they will be posting weekly updates on their progress, if you want to follow along with a project you are interested in. I’m sure they would appreciate any help or advice you have :-) Please make them feel welcome!

I mentored Sachin when he worked on some of our DevTools code and he will do a great job. Congrats Sachin!
Alternatively, there’s the Mozilla page on the GSoC2013 site, for a list that includes links to the proposals.
Thanks Mike :)
Although that doesn’t have full names or links to update locations.
Gerv, the about:memory project update location link is wrong. It points at the L10n dashboard project.
Fixed – thank you!
