Subject: [boost] Google Code-in 2010 (another Google program like Summer of Code)

Boost is invited to become a mentoring organization in the Google Code-in
2010 program. If you have never heard about it (like me :): It's basically
Google Summer of Code for pre-university students (the most important
requirement is that participants are between 13 and 18 years old). This
program is organized as a contest though: It's not so much about mentoring
but setting up tasks in eight categories (writing code, documenting,
translating etc.). Students will pick then tasks, and judges from
participating organizations decide who won. :)

While I've no idea if there is any interest to participate in this new
program (are there any pre-university students on this mailing list for
example?) I wanted to forward the invitation at least. As the deadline to
apply as a mentoring organization is 29 October there is not much time
left to decide either.
