+GNU Guix welcomes four students for GSoC
+We are glad to announce that four students will join GNU Guix for the 2016 
Google Summer of Code (GSoC):
+* Efraim will hack a 
 Bourne-shell compiler front-end for Guile].  While this may sound a bit crazy 
(and rather fun :-)), the motivation behind this is to help reduce 
[ the set 
of binaries GNU Guix relies on for bootstrapping].
+* Jelle will work on an npm 
importer] and 
[ build 
system] for 
 npm].  This will allow users to deploy JavaScript programming environments 
 in a controlled fashion], integrated with [...]
+* Manolis, who contributed a GNU/Hurd port of Guix 
[ last year], will work 
on [ 
porting GuixSD to GNU/Hurd].
+* Mathieu 
 will write] a continuous integration tool à la [ 
Hydra].  This will improve integration with Guix and will power continuous 
builds of our packages.
+All four projects sound exciting to us and we are happy to see progress on 
these fronts.  Happy hacking!
+== About GNU Guix ==
+[ GNU Guix] is a transactional package manager 
for the GNU system.  The Guix System Distribution or GuixSD is an advanced 
distribution of the GNU system that relies on GNU Guix and 
[ respects 
the user's freedom].
+In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports 
transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, 
per-user profiles, and garbage collection.  Guix uses low-level mechanisms from 
the Nix package manager, except that packages are defined as native 
[ Guile] modules, using extensions to the 
[ Scheme] language.  GuixSD offers a declarative approach to 
operating system configuration management, and is  [...]
+GuixSD can be used on an i686 or x86_64 machine.  It is also possible to use 
Guix on top of an already installed GNU/Linux system, including on mips64el and
