It’s with great pleasure that I say, “I’ve been accepted for GSoC this year”. The results were updated in the 12th, April morning and even though there was some confusion at the beginning the day turned out to be a great day of my life. And if this will help any one, this is my proposal for GSoC.
GSoC Proposal for GNOME-FoieGras
As I’ve mentioned previously, GSoC for this year is progressing now. Google Summer of Code is a programme funded by Google to improve the FOSS community in the world. More on GSoC can be found here, Google Summer of Code 2007
I’ve applied for only one project, that is a Gnome project – creating a doc editor for their documentation system, Mallard. The code name for the doc editor is “Foie Gras” and it’s still only a few good ideas and plans. So it’ll have to be implemented completely during the SoC duration.
“Foie Gras” will be done in python and XML. So using this doc editor, writers will be able to edit wikis and XML related documents easily. So hope it’ll be a good asset for the future doc writers who are using Gnome related products, especially Ubuntu.
Also all my 2 fellow Vesessins who applied for the SoC, Lakshan
and Amila have been selected; so this really a great occasion for us and also it indicates the strength within Vesess. Also representating Vesess, special thank should goto Prabath who gave us a great support from the very begining. And also good luck and congrats to all the GSoC selected people out there and don’t lose your hope who hasn’t got selected this time. You may very well get the chance next time!
