The Summer of Code application deadline (really, this time) is midnight tonight UTC/GMT, 5pm PST. Don’t get left out :-) It is possible to update applications after you’ve filed them and before the deadline (and possible to add comments even after that) so, if in doubt, get something in.
Extending the deadline has, for us, only resulted in six or seven more applications, and the number of applications is about 50% of what it was last year. I’m not sure why that is – persuading people to apply is not really within my power, at least. In the next few days, I guess I’ll find out whether we have quality rather than quantity :-)
