openSUSE has made it to yet another Google Summer of Code. This season, we got 14 students who would be contributing code to openSUSE, along with our sister organizations ownCloud, MATE and Zorp. Over the period of four months, students work towards completing their projects under the guidance of their mentors. Specific to openSUSE, we got a host of awesome projects with topics ranging to OSEM(Open Source Event Management), TSP(Travel Support Program application), Snapper, Live Flashing USB, Git Review, libvirt to name a few.
