1. Sugar Labs will be participating in Google Code-in again this year.
Ignacio Rodriguez and I are the program administrators and are now
gathering suggestions for bite-sized tasks in coding, documentation,
research, design, and outreach. We'll also be scouring the open issues in
the various Sugar-related repos for tasks. Please pass your suggestions out
way. Also, if you are interested in mentoring, please contact me. Finally,
it would great if you could help spread the word about the contest among
educators so that we can reach out to as many potential participants as
possible (the contest is open to 13-17 year olds). GCI is a great
opportunity to recruit new talent into the community. Details out the
contest are available at [1]. The Sugar Labs page describing out
participation is at [2].

2. There is a new release of Music Blocks available [3]. Features include a
marked improvement in performance and lots of bug fixes. Tip of the hat to
Devin Ulibarri, Edgar Quispe, and Euan Ong for their contributions to this

3. Congratulations to Lionel, Sameer, and Adam for being reelected to the
Sugar Labs oversite board. (And thanks to everyone who voted for my return
to the board as well.) Our next meeting is on 3 November at 19UTC in the
#sugar-meeting channel of irc.freenode.net.
