Is it just me or OpenBSD developers are not friendly with GSoC? ;p

I'm really glad to see FreeBSD and Blender in the top 10!
May the source be with you!

From what I can find, it's just a lack of interest.

Maybe one of the more OpenBSD savvy folks here know more though ...
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.

The position of OpenBSD team was and still is that they have no interest in GSoC. If Google really wants to help OpenBSD they can either donate money directly to the OpenBSD foundation or directly pay a developer (I intensionally have not used word hired because Google can not force a project onto an OpenBSD developer) to work full time on the specific thing they already working on. There has been recently flurry of very interesting developments in OpenBSD and according to Theo with enough money they could commit 10-15 very, very cool things very quickly.

Like ability to use almost unlimited buffer cash on AMD64. Softraid crypto on the root which can be configured from the installer. Huge improvements in the speed of the file systems and disks writes. Huge improvements in network speed. Multiprocessor friendly PF. Kernel crypto which can use multiprocessors and so on ...

Oh yes, I forgot minor changes like removing Bind and replacing it with Unbound. Removing Sandmail and replacing it with OpenSMTPd.

The OpenBSD project itself hasn't joined GSoC, but OpenSSH has in the past.. and it lead to improvements in sftp(1) for example.

I'm going to guess the main reason for no interest is the mentoring, people involved with developing OpenBSD do so for their own reasons.. personal or professional, they may not want to handhold some student learning the ropes.
