Hey everyone,

My name's Kyle Sammons and I've been accepted into this years GSoC. I was
also a GSoC participant for MacPorts last year working on Project "Clean-up
Stuff", which created the "port doctor" and "port reclaim" commands.

My project for this year is to get Pallet, the MacPorts GUI, up and running
with the support for newest versions of OS X and XCode. After that, I
intend to give it, and the Framework, some more modern-day-MacPorts
features. No features are set in stone as of yet, but I'm considering
adding doctor, reclaim, rev-upgrade, a progress bar, or possibly even the
ability to edit portfiles.

Once again, none of these potential features are set in stone so if you
guys would like to suggest any that would be nice to have, or have some
questions/concerns about the project, feel free to shoot me an email.

Should be a great summer,
-Kyle Sammons
