I guess it's now safe to announce that I have been appointed by Google as a Google Summer of Code 2013 mentor for two Boost C++ libraries, proposed Boost.AFIO (asynchronous file i/o support for C++) and proposed Boost.Trie (a prefix tree indexed STL C++ container). Both of these GSoC projects will be of immense benefit to the C++ ecosystem for all C++ users, and stand as strong candidates for future incorporation into a future ISO C++ language standard. My congratulations to the two students, Paul and Hardy respectively, who were selected by both Boost and Google over some very stiff competition indeed. I guess that's my free time from now till end of September spoke for anyway!
