Checklist for Google Summer of Code 2007

  • Gather the information about what should be contained in a proposal. It's currently scattered and needs to be collected in one place. [2007-Feb-18: Done, at least a solid draft - JGN]

  • Identify mentors right away [2007-Mar-8 sample done]

  • Possibly create a mentors@scons mailing list if we have enough. [2007-Feb-22 done]

  • Get ideas written up sooner and figure out how to write better task suggestions.

  • Mine for ideas wherever we can:
    • Ideas from last year.

    • Requests for enhancements and new features in the issues database.

    • Defects (bugs) in the issues database.

    • Advertisements on scons-dev and especially on scons-users mailing lists.

    • Advertisements on scons.org and scons.tigris.org web pages.
    • Projects/companies that use SCons.

    • Where else? Update SummerOfCode if other sources are found so that we won't forget them in future.

  • Be prepared for Google's announcement:
    • Have the web pages done before the application period so Google can audit them.

    • Get our application in to Google immediately, so they have plenty of time to look us over and confirm that we are a viable candidate.

    • Use a name that better says what we do [2007-Mar-8 done]

  • Advertise our participation to drum up more submissions. We will be listed on Google's own heavily-advertised web pages, but there are plenty of other places:
    • Mailing lists (scons-users primarily, but also scons-dev).

    • www.scons.org and scons.tigris.org web pages.

    • Related third-party sources:
      • tigris.org
      • python.org (they mention Python-powered projects in their own SoC pages)
      • sourceforge.net (although that's a tenuous connection)
      • Projects/companies that use SCons, both web pages and mailing lists.

    • Where else? Update SummerOfCode if other sources are found so that we won't forget them in future.
