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.

Late entry...

Name: GNUstep
+ GNUstep is a console, desktop and web application development framework for
+ development using Objective-C. It is based on OPENSTEP specification, and is
+ today interested in achieving compatibility with Apple's Cocoa set of
+ frameworks.
+ GNUstep consists of gnustep-base (classes for strings, arrays, dictionaries,
+ timers, sockets, et al), gnustep-gui (classes for windows, buttons,
+ textboxes, et al), gnustep-make (a build system) as well as an assortment of
+ development utilities and bonus libraries.

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.


Discuss-gnustep mailing list
If I can suggest, I'd focus the energies on the gnustep code, like CA/CG, KVB, make GORM to know about KVB/KVO and so on,  rather than doing a debian derivative.

A distro can be done later when will be more near to 10.6 and will have a proper window manager (and also my time is almost finished, so all those people are crying for the bad look and feel, will habe no more excuses about the bad look and fill, so we will go to see on what they will start to cry again.

 (P.S: I should send a patch to NSArray for cocoa compatibility,  I just have to remember to do that... it is just an if check...))
