Google summer of code??

Post by poyntesm »

Wondering if phpBB.com got rejected from SOC?

http://area51.phpbb.com/soc/ seems to make it seem as though phpBB would be in SOC2K7 ... but http://code.google.com/soc does not have them listed.

Anyone from the team able to comment? I presume the original CCP's must have worked to a level that the phpBB group decided it was worthwhile doing a second round. Will the SOC ideas be opened up as CPP's?

I'm betting they decided themselves not to go.

Unfortunately, phpBB was not able to get approved by Google. :(

Yeah we put up the ideas page which is one of the parts of an organization's application. They've received several hundreds of applications but only accepted about 130. Unfortunately we're not going to take part.
