Good news for students interested in contributing to open source this summer: QEMU.org has been accepted for Google Summer of Code 2011!
If you are interested or have a friend who is enrolled at a university and would like to get paid to work on open source software this summer, check out the QEMU GSoC 2011 ideas page. The full list of accepted organizations is here.
Take a look at my advice on applying on how to succeed with your student application and get chosen.
It's going to be a fun summer and I'm looking forward to getting to know talented students who want to contribute to open source!
