Looking over the suggested list of projects, I wanted to say, this is
an awesome idea. It certainly will help MacPorts with some needed
maintenance, features, or hopefully, totally out of the box features.
I was curious, what was the outcome of last years gsoc with regard to
MacPorts? What was done, how many total students were approved?
I believe it was on the WordPress blog I read that there is a 5000.00
prize. Are most students shooting for that, meaning they are going to
hit more high profile projects like WordPress?
Personally, I would find MacPorts a funner entry, but if I were solely
motivated by the prize money, I'd go high profile; which happens to be
a bit easier IMHO since WordPress is going to be nearly all php or UI/
Then again, php and tcl aren't *that* far apart if you know one or the
other. I imagine any CS students hurdle to simply be syntactical.
Thanks if anyone remembers how last year went down. I could find
anything with a quick google.
