Drupal has been invited to participate and I'm in the process of 
organizing things. There's a thread for the masses here:

To the developer's list, I have three requests:

1) if you want to participate as a mentor, contact me off list
2) if you have ideas of projects that you think are appropriate for a 
student in a summer's time, please start working on the following:
   - describe the project and it's motivations
   - describe a roadmap and (as far as possible) a technical 
specification that can be followed
   - keep in mind that students choose their projects based on what they 
find interesting and what they think they can accomplish, so remember 
what would have caught your attention as a student.
3) we will soon have an "official" Summer of Code 2006 page where these 
projects can be described and discussed. It's not there yet. When it is 
there, please advertise it. Blog about it and if you have contact with 
students, point them to it and encourage them to apply.
