Sixteen students will work on various aspects of Debian GNU/Linux as part of the Google Summer of Code, according to information from the Debian project.

The GSoC is an annual event, held from May to August, during which Google awards stipends to students who successfully complete a requested free and open-source software coding project during the western summer.

The students and the projects they will be working on are:

Aarsh Shah: Improvements to Debian Search and the Search Interface

Aron Xu: ZFS on Linux integration

Boris Bobrov: Debian Metrics Portal

Catalin Usurelu: Enabling free multimedia real-time communications (RTC) with Debian

Eleanor Chen: MIPS N32/N64 ABI Port

Emmanouil Kiagias: Redesign metapackage creation for Debian Blends

Eugenio Cano-Manuel: Leiningen & Clojure packaging

Fabian Grünbichler: Add CROTP support to oath-toolkit and dynalogin

Gustavo Alkmim: Bootstrappable Debian

Justus Winter: Debian GNU/Hurd Debianish initialisation

Lei Wang: OpenRC init system in Debian

Léo Cavaillé: scan-build on the Debian archive

Marko Lalic: PTS rewrite in Django

Pawel Sarbinowski: Debian Android Application

Shuxiong Ye: OpenJDK and Debian

Simon Chopin: Implementation of message passing in the Debian infrastructure

Last year 15 students worked on Debian projects during the GSoC and in 2011 nine were accepted.

The Debian GNU/Linux project was begun by Ian Murdock in 1993 to create a community-supported distribution. It has close to 1000 developers and supports more architectures than any other distribution. Many other popular distributions are based on Debian.
