We have pushed back the first part of the Summer Coding 2010 schedule.
There wasn't enough time to find sponsors.  Now there is more time for
mentors and students to generate ideas and write up good proposals,
while people like you and me look for more sponsors.

Highlights - note all due items now have an entire month more:

* Ideas page closes 13 May
* Proposals are due 20 May
* Sponsors must pledge by 21 May

Projects are set to start on 01 June, which is only a week after the
original start date.  Our goal is to be as flexible as we can be after
that, contact us if you have any questions about how to make the
schedule work for you:

Here is the updated schedule, reprinted below[1]:
