Apache is very pro GSoC :-) ... I *started* GSoC with Chris DiBona back at
Google in 2005. It was just the two of us running it... it was quite
painful. And being the ASF Chairman at the time, I made sure the ASF was
selected as one of the organizations :-) ... The ASF has participated every
year since, and I don't see that changing.

As Luciano notes, we run it Foundation-wide rather than per-project. It
makes it a lot easier for everybody, and we usually get lots of project
slots assigned to us.
