So yesterday the student proposal submission ended and I am heavily impressed in two ways. First, there were less proposals for Pygame than the years before, but that does not mean much, because it seems that the overall interest in the GSoC is not as high as the last years.
However, the handful of proposals submitted specifically for Pygame are (quality-wise) top-notch. Even worse, the students introduced themselves quite some time before submitting on the mailing list (something which only was done by about 60% of the students in the last years), discussed their ideas, made adjustments based on the feedback and some even planned ahead regarding the extensibility of what they want to accomplish.
This will be probably the hardest selection to be done and I would love to see them all being accepted and working on their projects. As this is hardly possible, maybe we can convince those left behind to work on their projects anyways, which would be really great.
