I am sure that in some sense many projects are treated unfairly, it is just a sort of arbitrary unfairness rather than any specifically targeted. Clearly D satisfies the "is not a minuscule niche", "has reasonable mentors", "has projects", "is FOSS", and the fail of "could fund this some other way". My guess would be the "can be done in 8 weeks by a student" was seen as the problem for too many of the proposals. It will be interesting to see if the total number of internships is smaller to match the decrease in organizations. -- Russel. ============================================================================= Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.win...@ekiga.net 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: rus...@winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder
