GSOC Begins

We have accepted the projects for PostgreSQL's participation in the 2012 Google Summer of Code.  They are:
  • JDBC Foreign Data Wrapper, by Atri, mentored by Merlin Moncure
  • Document Collection Foreign Data Wrapper, by Zheng Yang (a returning student), mentored by Satoshi Nagayasu
  • Implementing TABLESAMPLE, by Qi, mentored by Stephen Frost
  • Better Indexing for Ranges, by Alexander, mentored by Heikki Linnakangas
  • xReader Streaming xLog Reader, by Aakash, mentored by Kevin Grittner
So a bunch of exciting cool stuff.  We're looking forward to great things from these students, not the least of which is becoming ongoing contributors.  It's two fewer projects than last time, due mostly to having fewer mentors available.

When you see these students on the PostgreSQL mailing lists, please be friendly and help them out.
