GSoC 2013 Project List

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!

  1. Gerv, the about:memory project update location link is wrong. It points at the L10n dashboard project.
