Why is your group applying to participate? What do you hope to gain by participating?

In April 2007, Eiffel Software announced that EiffelStudio will be open source. Almost two years after opening the source code to the community at large, there has been some major contribution to the tool such as the testing framework. Some others are still work in progress (SCOOP, schema evolution, proofs, ...)

Being an open source project, it makes sense for Eiffel Software to participate in the Google Summer of Code in order to get more contributors to the technology as well as gaining in visibility among the open source community.
