[erlang-questions] Google Summer of Code 2014 with the BEAM Community

Hello,

Perhaps I've been too busy last year or something but what happened to 
the 2013 projects? I'm not even sure what most of them were, and I don't 
think I've heard of one even being merged/released. I remember looking 
at the mailing list at some point just before the end and had no clue 
what the reports were talking about either.

Any chance this year it could be a little more transparent for people 
who can't invest all their time in following it?

As it stands now I have no idea if any project benefited from it. 
Perhaps this is something that could be useful for my projects, but it 
doesn't really sound like it right now.
