X.Org/Mesa/Wayland Isn't Part Of GSoC 2013
Phoronix: X.Org/Mesa/Wayland Isn't Part Of GSoC 2013
While the X.Org Foundation and other projects under its umbrella like Mesa and Wayland benefited from Google's Summer of Code initiative for several years, last year it wasn't accepted to participate in GSoC 2012. The list of accepted organizations for GSoC 2013 was announced today and X.Org/Mesa/Wayland again isn't part of the acceptance list...
By chance, last year, I met someone from the GSoC program, and the subject of the selection process and X.org came up. Her explanation was that they don't have anything against X.org specifically, they just like to rotate projects out every few years to give other people a turn.
That's even more odd. Do they apply?

I'd bet Michael wrote and queued the article assuming X.org wouldn't get in, and didn't even check! It'll be on slashdot next.

maybe X.org can offer you some kickbacks so you stop providing coverage for it, because really if you can't even manage to remove an obviously wrong article, it doesn't bode well.
At the time, X.Org wasn't listed on the page. Now that it's been noted there are/were organizations missing from the 2013 list and X.Org Foundation has since been added to the list, it's been updated with title and removed from front-page.
