Yay! My proposal, Graphviz DOT as a DSL for Zest, has been accepted for the Google Summer of Code 2009 at Eclipse. The application process went smooth and was a very exciting experience (peaking in the packed #gsoc channel when results were announced). Recieving an acceptance notification little more than two weeks after the application deadline is a truly refreshing experience compared to what I know from academia. So with an awesome program so far, I'm now looking forward to some morebonding with Zest at the Foundation before the coding begins on May 23rd.
