Lists: pgsql-hackers
'k, since there appears to be interest, I've tried to read a bit more up 
on it, specifically the FAQs ... seems simple enough, but someone else may 
have found a link that I haven't ...

Basically, developer (ie. Ramy Hassan) would go to:

 	http://code.google.com/soc_application.html

Fill out this form and put 'Other' for Sponsor, and PostgreSQL Global 
Development Group in the blank space provided ... I can't find any 
specific "sponsor application form" on Google, but, again, may be missing 
something ...

I've sent a note off to Google asking for more information on becoming a 
mentor, will post once I hear back more ...

While waiting, for any students that are interested, can I suggest going 
to the above URL, look at what is requested in preparation ...
