Checklist for Google Summer of Code 2008

  • Revamp the proposal description to emphasize process and be less intimidating. [2007-Apr-22: a draft is available for comment - JGN] [2008-Mar-04: final draft published - JGN]

  • Get Bug#1234 and Bug#4321 links working. [2007-05-30: Fixed by Gary Oberbrunner; see Bug#1650 - JGN]

  • Identify more mentors

    • Recruitment should be on-going throughout the year.
    • There should be a specific campaign in January or February.
  • Harass Greg to write a mentors' how-to for SCons. [2007-04-20: Started work - JGN]

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

  • Mine for ideas wherever we can:
    • Monitor mailing lists and capture suitable ideas.
    • 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 this checklist 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.
  • 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).
    • Google-summer-of-code-discuss mailing list.
    • 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 this checklist if other sources are found so that we won't forget them in future.
