As agreed[1], FreedomBox is participating this year in Google Summer Of
Code program as Debian[2]. We proposed to implement the long awaited Email

*20* Students contacted us; out of them 1/3 (*8*) filed a formal
application. And last week we chose the student who will work on it: *Flynn*

I wanted the applicants to be the first ones to know and to show our
appreciation for each of them, so I've used some days to contact each
applicant individually. Now it's public. :)

Notice that most students showed great qualities and our limiting factor is
the availability of mentors. So, dear community members, please consider to
mentor, so we can provide more slots. It is quite some work, but seems to
be a nice way to buy in new contributors.
