Hello Haiku fans,

The Haiku Projcet is glad to announce the first Haiku Code Drive, a
program designed to raise funds from the community in order to sponsor
students to produce code for Haiku.

The Haiku Code Drive 2008 program specifically targets students that
applied for Haiku but could not make it into the Google Summer of Code. 
They will be offering them a U$2,500 stipend per successfully completed
project. You can check out the candidate projects here:


Here is an overview of the Haiku Code Drive 2008:


This is a community-funded program. Therefore, how many students we can
sponsor will depend on the generosity of all the Haiku fans out there.
The community will also get to influence where the funds go, as the
students will be chosen by means of a public poll.

They know that many long time followers and lurkers as well as newcomers
to our project have been waiting for a good reason to donate to Haiku.
They are hoping that the community will grab this opportunity and show
their generosity for our project. So show us your love for Haiku and
start making those donations now:


You only have until May 29, so don't wait!
