Google Summer Of Code

Post by garvinhicking » Tue Apr 18, 2006 9:44 am

Hi All!

I was notified by a student who would maybe like to work on/with Serendipity within the Google Summer Of Code project. So I applied Serendipity as one of those projects and setup a wiki page to discuss the ideas for it:

http://www.s9y.org/140.html

Please go there and contribute, if you want!

Best regards,
Garvin

I've contributed and added my name so you can see my request - feel free to edit this so it makes more sense

Nice! The requests are all excellent, so far. I thought Serendipity was perfect, until I saw these ideas. That would rock.

Google has rejected us. :(

Thank you for your email. Unfortunately, we cannot offer Serendipity
Weblog admission to Summer of Code at this time. Best of luck to you
and your colleagues with your project and all your future endeavors.


Best regards,

Hi Falk!

Well, you quoted the response. That's all I got. :-)

It seems google has gotten very many requests from all kind of applications, so they decided to be very strict about who they include.

Best regards,
Garvin

<sour grapes>Hmmph. Well, we didn't need them, anyway.</sour grapes>

Seriously, though, too bad. It was nice to imagine what could be done, and maybe get some young enthusiastic kid in here to help out.

On the bright side, now we've got a place to keep our to-do list. Will we be updating it regularly, or just letting it go?

Hi!

I thought we could keep it there as a Todo-List for "somebody with A LOT motivation". The generel-purpose Todolists can be kept, as they are the more realistic TODOs at least for me ;)

Garvin

Where do we keep those? I've had moments when I thought, "If only there was a little thing I could do..."

Just caught up with this thread again, and I understand there are a lot of very good open source projects out there but that is very disappointing news, especially with all the hard work you guys have put in. Ah well, perhaps we should email the IT faculties of some big technical colleges or universities, maybe they might be more interested. Anyone know any professors who teach php?

judebert: We usually keep TODO features/bugfix requests on the trackers on http://sf.net/projects/php-blog :-)

And what's the problem with going on with the task list?

I do not care for google code summer stuff, anyhow the multi-blog stuff is in progress, from 'admin panel' wouldn't be the problem though.

Only thing I have to do after finishing it, is to add support for mysql ... atm it's only for postgresql.

Hi!

There's no problem, it just takes time. The SummerOfCode would have helped with people that are motivated to get the task done. :-)

Best regards,
Garvin
