Almost 24 hours ago Google announces list of accepted projects in this year edition of Google Summer of Code program. In current edition Eclipse Foundation got 17 slots (as you may know from Wayne post). One of this slots was allocated for me (as a student) and Matthias Sohn, the project that we’ll be working is a continuation of my last year work for EGit project. The project name is “EGit Synchronize View support part 2”, if somebody is curious what this project is about you can check it on melange’s (I’ve made it public). In this proposal I want to address most important missing features in current implementation of EGit Synchronization support. If you think that something there is missing pleas let me know via mail or comments!
Apart from that I’m third time GSoC student (and that Eclipse got 17 slots!) there is another good news for me … on the list of accepted proposals in Eclipse Foundation there is 6 (six!) student’s names that looks like there are from Poland! Yeah! 1/3 of Eclipse GSoC students seams to be from Poland, this is really great information! Next great thing is that four projects are mentored by Polish mentors! Great work guys! And good luck 😉
And last but not least, as far as I know there is one other student from my university that was accepted in GSoC11. This is some kind of regression comparing to 2010 edition where there were three accepted students. Maybe in next edition this will be improved, we’ll see.
After announcement the “community bonding” time begins … but not for me since I’m quite well integrated with EGit community 😉 therefore for me the “coding period” starts today ;>
