We are very excited to announce that Debian has selected three interns to work under mentorship on a variety of projects with us during the Google Summer of Code.

Here are the list of the projects, interns, and details of the tasks to be performed.


Project: Android SDK Tools in Debian

  • Interns: Nkwuda Sunday Cletus and Raman Sarda

The deliverables of this project will mostly be finished packages submitted to Debian sid, both for new packages and updated packages. Whenever possible, we should also try to get patches submitted and merged upstream in the Android sources.


Project: Project: Quality Assurance for Biological and Medical Applications inside Debian

  • Interns: Mohammed Bilal

Deliverables of the project: Continuous integration tests for all Debian Med applications (life sciences, medical imaging, others), Quality Assurance review and bug fixing.


Congratulations and welcome to all the interns!

The Google Summer of Code program is possible in Debian thanks to the efforts of Debian Developers and Debian Contributors that dedicate part of their free time to mentor interns and outreach tasks.

Join us and help extend Debian! You can follow the interns' weekly reports on the debian-outreach mailing-list, chat with us on our IRC channel or reach out to the individual projects' team mailing lists.

With this additional commitment as Platinum Sponsor for DebConf22, Google contributes to make possible our annual conference, and directly supports the progress of Debian and Free Software helping to strengthen the community that continues to collaborate on Debian projects throughout the rest of the year.
