Yes, the plan is that as in the last few years, the OBF will apply to
GSoC and cover for BioPerl, BioJava, BioRuby, Biopython etc. At
this stage the Bio* projects would be wise to start coming up with
some good project ideas and experienced developers thinking about
being a mentor. For potential students, getting involved in the
community early is a good idea (e.g. bug reports, or better fixing
existing bugs)
