Move existing project definitions from projects/gsoc_2011/ to
projects/project/ .

The goal for this reorganization is to remove any knowledge of the projects
classification from the file hierarchy: the classification goes into tags,
and projects indexes automatically list projects based on such tags.

Also, the current gsoc_2011 name was wrong anyway, because GSoC 2011 has
already concluded and projects would have had to move to a gsoc_2012 directory

Lastly, yes, "projects/project/*" is slightly redundant.  But I want to keep
the project lists from the projects "database" clearly separated.

This is as proposed in www@.

title="Port launchd"


[Christos Zoulas](

duration="3 months"

[Launchd]( is a MacOS/X utility that is used to start and control daemons similar to init(8), but much more powerful. There was an effort to port launchd to FreeBSD, but it seems to be [abandoned]( We should first investigate what happened to the FreeBSD effort to avoid duplicating work. The port is not trivial because launchd uses a lot of mach features.
