Now it's for real! 

The (long) form has been filled and now maemo is an organization
candidate in http://code.google.com/soc/ . The deadline was/is TODAY and
we will know if we are approved or not THIS WEDNESDAY.

Now, there are still two FUNDAMENTAL pieces that are still weak and need
to be strengthen NOW (and I mean *now*, not in a couple of hours).

Look this: http://maemo.org/maemowiki/GoogleSoC2007

- We need more ideas. I have done my best gathering ideas discussed in
this list, but you know what is still missing. Go and edit the wiki page
before Google reviews it (hopefully all of them are sleeping in
California now).  ;)  NOTE: you don't need to be an expert or to be
involved in the ideas you suggest. Good ideas are simply good ideas.

- We need more mentors. Yes, this is work... if we get a project for you
and you agree on taking it. By now it is just a declaration of serious
intentions... that may help maemo getting more projects or even get
approved at all. Count and average of half an hour a day assisting a
great student working on that functionality you have been missing for so


- You won't be forced to mentor a project you dislike.
- You won't be forced to keep mentoring a project if you don't have the
- We will help and even substitute you if you are overwhelmed. Yes, we
know the unexpected happen in the best houses. But we are many, we know
about SoC and we can assist.
