Google Summer of Code "DOs and DON'Ts"

The Google Summer of Code team have published three nice short articles entitled The DOs and DON'Ts of Google Summer of Code:

The nice thing is that these aren't just narrow-focused policies for the Google Summer of Code; they are well-thought-out, comprehensive advice for anybody participating in a software community.

Right on the heels of the Google articles, Rands in Repose published his own take on internship in the software industry; although he's oriented more towards the traditional in-office internship, he's also got a number of great insights.

Even if you aren't an open source coder, if you work in the software industry, or if you're still a student of computing, you are almost certainly part of a software community of some sort, and it wouldn't be a waste of time to read through these commonsense points.
