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 ( ).  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,
