I'd like to introduce the Semesta of Code a pilot that is providing
Degree level Computer science students in Europe with academic credits
for working on exciting FOSS projects. I believe this would be a great
opportunity for W3C a11y related open source projects, especially if you
have a chunk of work that could take students about a month of
concentrated effort, or more. It could be development or another task
suitable for Computer science students.

Semesta of Code is somewhat like Google Summer of Code but as well as
giving students academic credits rather than cash we have kept project
admin to the absolute minimum. We will be available to support both
you and the students.

We've set a deadline for outline project ideas by the end of the week.
My apologies for notifying you so late but I do hope you have
something that you'd like worked on by enthusiastic students.

PS I've attached a PDF created for the project- please let me know if
it if you have any problems accessing it.
