NetBSD has been involved in the Google Summer of Code since its conception
in 2005. This year we were glad to once again have the oppertunity to
introduce six students to our operating system, to Open Source
software development and get them sponsored by Google to work on projects
defined by the NetBSD developers:

Julio M. Merino Vidal implemented an "Automated Testing Framework"
(mentored by Martin Husemann):

Oliver Gould started to port the Solaris ZFS file system to NetBSD
(mentored by Dieter Baron)

Sumantra R. Kundu started to implement a "Framework For Enforcing QoS
Inside the NetBSD UVM" (mentored by William Stouder-Studenmund):

Thanks to Antti Kantee's project it is now possibe to run "Kernel File
Systems in Userspace" (mentored by William Stouder-Studenmund)

C. Lam):

We thank Google for the opportunity to participate in the Summer of Code
2007. This helps to ensure the continual improvement and innovation of
NetBSD. Congratulations and many thanks to all involved students and
mentors for the great work. We hope that the students will continue
their commitment for NetBSD.
