Subject: [gentoo-dev] 2008 Google Summer of Code
Date: Tue, 29 Jan 2008 15:18:04
1 Google has been hinting not-so-subtlely that there's going to be
2 a 2008 Google Summer of Code. I expect that if we want to participate,
3 we're going to have to have our ducks in a row by March, if not
4 earlier.
6 So, does Gentoo want to participate this year?
8 If so, who's going to run it? Who's going to help? What are
9 we going to do differently this year?
11 I'll help if it's something people want to do, but I'd like to see
12 some serious changes this year. I'd like us to only accept proposals
13 that we actually think are quite good. In the past we've been told that we
14 have N slots to fill, so we choose the best N proposals, despite the
15 fact that we often only get a handful of exceptional proposals. I'd
16 also like to see us require weekly public status reports from our
17 students. Quick show of hands: how many people know how what any
18 of our students accomplished last year? I doubt there are many,
19 despite the fact that some good work was done last year.
21 Thoughts? Comments?
