Congratulations to our accepted students!

All told, we had 52 applications submitted for the 6 slots (5
originally assigned, plus 1 extra) allotted to us by Google.
Proposals were extremely competitive: 6 out of 52 translates to an
11.5% acceptance rate.  We received a lot of really excellent
proposals, the decisions were not easy.

Thanks very much to all the students who applied, we very much
appreciate your hard work.

Here's to a great 2010 Summer of Code, I'm sure these students will do
some wonderful work.
