We are accepting more organizations this year than last because we want to add a couple hundred more students to the program, so if you are part of a great project or know someone who is, we'd love to see an application. Please note that this is for organization and not for prospective students, that's not for a few more weeks (see the rogram timeline). Thanks!"

Jon Rosenberg, a PBM (whatever that is) with the worlds largest software company, submitted them just a few minutes ago, so they've yet to make it into the linked archive. He sent two emails proposing the Microsoft Permissive License and Microsoft Community License. Let's see if we can break some of those comment records!"

We've got some great applications but I'd love to see more. We're accepting 800 students this year into the program and we have 131 open source organizations who'd love to see you apply. Anyone can talk about open source but you could be coding some with some of the best developmers out there. Apply today."
