Google Summer of Code/2014

GSoC 2014 With BRL-CAD

BRL-CAD was accepted as a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code! We accepted as many students as we had mentors and quality student proposals, the latter being the deciding factor this year. We accepted 11 students, of which 10 were successful in their projects. As an umbrella org, 3 of those students worked on projects for STEPcode, LibreCAD, and OpenSCAD.
