Several students proposed this year to specific colour management themes.
Unfortunately not all could be accepted for the stipends, even though the 
quality of the proposals where generally high for the themes and 
response was very lifely. The mentors made their decision and picked 
the following three proposals and students.

Yiannis Belias will continue the last years project:
"API stabilization for Oyranos Colour Management System II" for OpenICC
We have seen good progress and quite useable code during the last year 
period. Still there is lots to do to integrate and finish the code 

Joseph Simon will work on:
"Color Management for the Common Printing Dialog (CPD)" for OpenICC
This is a working title and might be changed based on input of the
community. The idea covers a prototypical CM UI for print dialogs either
using the CPD or perhaps something like the GTK print dialog.  Perhaps the
biggest challange will be to figure out what should be in the printing CM
UI. It would be great to see the OpenICC list to help work out the UI

Sebastian Oliva will work on:
"ICC Device Profile Repository" at the openSUSE organisation
A colour database to allow clients to request or submit colour profiles 
for colour managed devices. The idea was proposed at openSUSE as a 
collaboration project in their ongoing support of colour management. It 
will be mentored with the help from OpenICC people.

Congratulations for the acceptance of your proposals for the Google Summer 
of Code stipends this year. And thanks in advance for bringing your 
valuable time and energy into these projects to improve open source colour
