Can you send your mentor details/register at melange? Also, perhaps it would be useful to request people at address@hidden to update ideas page with a description of work needed to be done at KVB? (It would be useful for me, too, to be able to pass on to interested people.)

If the student that I have found seems like he may be able to participate (i.e. has sufficient understanding of the language and the work that needs to be done), I'll also let him know that there's more than just CA available. I feel like the work on CA may be simple enough (if tedious), but am not familiar with what needs to be done with KVB.

For the record...

Also, as required and if you wish to mentor this year, please send the information to Jose and Giuseppe.

We may have a student this year... I'll hopefully have more information by the deadline. 

Any particular project that people have in mind or do we want to further push CA/CG? I can certainly mentor about CA, perhaps about preparing a GNUstep-focused {Debian,Ubuntu}-derived distribution, but probably about little else.

Yes, there is another one, that has been on our list for a long time: bring KVB up to par with MacOSX 10.6, I would be willing to mentor this, as otherwise I will have to code it myself :-(

Late entry...

Name: GNUstep

+ today interested in achieving compatibility with Apple's Cocoa set of

I'll send my mentor information. Hopefully additional mentors can be added at a later stage, as required.

Hi hackers.

We got officially accepted as a participating organization in GSOC 2015.

Now it is time to collect more ideas and also collect information
projects and mentors.

For each participating GNU software we need an entry like this (recutils
records please) sent to this mailing list:

Name: recutils
+ GNU Recutils is a set of tools and libraries to access
+ human-editable, plain text databases called recfiles.  The data
+ is stored as a sequence of records, each record containing an
+ arbitrary number of named fields.
Contact: address@hidden

Then, for each mentor we need the following information to be sent to
address@hidden with CC address@hidden:

1. A record of this form:

   Id: jemarch
   Name: Jose E. Marchesi
   Email: address@hidden
   AltEmail: address@hidden
   Phone: 666666666666
   Project: recutils

   The Id in the record above must be your melange nickname.  We will
   not be publishing your phone number nor the alternative email in

2. A connection in melange.  Login into your account and request a
   mentor connection with the GNU Project.
