PSU was also selected as a mentor organization. We'll be spiffing up
our own projects page, adding some projects to enable Postgresql to be
used more easily as a teaching tool.
RSN we'll be soliciting student participation in the SOC and we will be
sure to highlight the PostgreSQL projects page as well as our own.
On a related note, a patch generated by two PSU students (Tom Raney,
Shreya Bhargava) last summer was just applied to 8.4 (
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-patches/2008-03/msg00209.php ). It
enables the hash index, long deprecated because of unacceptable build
times, to be usable. I'm sure PDXPUG joins me in congratulating them.
All the best,
