    1213There are several things to consider. We are willing to support and mentor students who want to gain an experience by working on the macports project. We have many ideas for potential internship subjects, yet we are open to anything that is both interesting and relevant to the MacPorts project. Motivated students do not necessarily need to know Tcl language beforehand, especially if they already know several script languages such as python, ruby or perl.
