Google's Summer of Code 2008 is on, and the Tcl/Tk community is one of the mentor organizations this year.  This includes myself as a mentor on project opportunities for students.  I've listed a couple of Tcl plugin and Tk extension ideas, but would be open to other ideas if any student was interested.  Other ideas range from AOLserver to Jacl to native Cocoa work - lots of options for enterprising students.

So now begins phase 2 - finding students interested in the ideas.  The details are in the first link, but students may start applying for particular projects next Monday, March 24th.

Anyone with connections to universities or other compsci student groups that might be interested, point them in the direction of the ideas list and encourage an application.
