This year, Eclipse is participating in Google’s Summer of Code. Google has been kind enough to offer some money to students to work on an open-source project of their choice. Eclipse has 11 (!) projects this summer aiming to enhance various aspects of Eclipse. Here they are:

* ECF BitTorrent Provider (#144133)
o Student: Remy Chi Jian Suen
o Mentor(s): Chris Aniszczyk, Scott Lewis, Wayne Beaton

* Word Wrap for Text Viewer and Editor
o Student: Ahti Kitsik
o Mentor(s): Philippe Ombredanne

I’m personally thrilled about each of the projects (a few that involve collaboration, which Eclipse desperately needs). A special IRC channel has been setup for the students: #eclipse-soc. I encourage everyone to help out the students if they have time 🙂
