Adium, the open
source multi-network chat client with more features than I thought existed, has recently announced that they are going
to be a mentoring project in this year's Google Summer of Code.
For those unfamiliar: it's a program that brings students together to collaborate on and learn about open source
programming. Each summer Google accepts and offers many different projects that students may apply to work on, as you
can see from their extensive list.
Adium's list of available projects is quite lengthy as well, which should be good news for fans and users of the app. I have honestly never paid that much attention to the Google Summer of Code events before, but I do know that they have improved or given birth to a lot of great OSS in the past. Good luck to Adium and company!
