This year Orange has been accepted into the Google summer of Code program as a mentoring organization. It is one of 175 open-source organizations/projects/groups which will this year mentor students while they will be working on those accepted open source projects.
We have prepared a page on our Trac with more information about the Google Summer of Code program, especially how the interested students should apply with their proposals. There is also a list of of some ideas we are proposing for this year. Check out also official project page for Orange.

Student is paid $5000 (and a t-shirt!) for approximately two months of work/contribution to the project. More about the program is available on its homepage.
