[jitsi-dev] implementation of libjitsi Spin-off (GSOC) project


#1

Hey Martin,

Hi all,
I sent the same email as below to this list two days ago, but it
probably got lost somehow because I didn't get any response since
then. I am sorry if this is a duplicate.

Nope, we got it. Just haven't had the time to respond :slight_smile:

My name is Martin Zukal and I am a second-year PhD student at the Brno
University of Technology, Czech Republic.

Pleased to meet you!

I posted a question (and got an answer) to this mailing list regarding
the implementation of video capabilities and possibilities of running
the code from an applet in February this year.
After that I came over your ideas page for Google Summer of Code 2012
and I found the project “libjitsi Spin-off ” very appealing. However,
I didn't manage to apply for the project because of duties at the
university.
I have noticed that the project haven't been selected for GSOC so I
decided to offer you that I will do my best and try to complete the
project.

We have actually just started working on exactly this topic at BlueJimp and
should have our first results quite soon.

Don't worry though. There's plenty more to do so if you are willing to
invest time in Jitsi, just let me know and we'd be able to find you
something else that you also find appealing.

Cheers,
Emil

familiar with the Jitsi source code because we wanted to use it in one
project at our university.
Please let me know whether it is possible to contribute to Jitsi in
this way. If so, can you please provide me with detailed information
about the project? I would also highly appreciate if someone could
guide me during the period I will work on the project.
Best regards

Hi Emil,
thank you for your response and sorry for my impatience about the answer:)
I'm glad that the project will be implemented because I think it's a
great idea. Is the library going to be available under open source
license as a part of the Jitsi code?
I really looked forward to implementing it, but nevermind. I saw some
other media related projects at the GSOC ideas page so I will check
the ideas page again and let you know if I find something I would be
interested in.
Regards
Martin

Yes, of course!

as a part of the Jitsi code?

We will probably host it in a separate location, and Jitsi will be using
the jars we release there.

I really looked forward to implementing it, but nevermind.

Sorry for the disappointment. Again, I'd be happy to have a chat with
you and help you figure something else that you might enjoy. Just send
me a note offlist and we can arrange for a time to chat.

Cheers,
Emil
