We just announced the expansion of the Summer of Code to 400 people. Yay!

Oh, wow. I thought the initial program was amazing, and now you've doubled it! That's, what, 2 million dollars? I can't wait to see how the projects turn out and what ends up being made. It would be nice if there was a central list of all accepted projects with maybe a short description.

That's not 2 million dollars! 2 million dollars it's the maximum amount of money if all 400 aplicants do a good job. But I don't think it will be the case ;).

As opposed to HTTP 400: Did not understand request; try again?

Great job supporting over 400 students with open source work. That is a very nice bounty for the poor college kids. Also the connections made between mentoring organizations and the students is a great way to learn about the community. Thanks! :-)
