I'm very pleased to announce that MacPorts has been selected by  
Google as an organizational member of Google Summer of Code 2007.  
This means that students may apply to work on MacPorts projects  
through the Summer of Code program sponsored by google. Compensation  
for completion of a project is $4500 to the student, and $500 to  

I can say that I, and the other members of the MacPorts portmgr team  
and community, are excited by this opportunity to improve MacPorts  
while also welcoming new contributors to the MacPorts ecosystem.
