Fist of all, thank you very much for replying.

That's true. (Thanks for answering Earl). It doesn't mean that you
shouldn't work on gaming if that's what you'd really like to do but if
it's all the same to you then you might as well go for something that is
more important to the community. As Earl mentioned, finalizing our
support for jingle (i.e. adding video, zrtp, and a complete ICE
implementation) is one such issue, and although we all agree it was very
important, I am not sure anyone in particular was actually planning on
implementing it. In other words we'd be very happy if you do.
Well, i am still a new comer to the project SC and working on understanding
and getting a clear picture of the architecture, code and the project as a
whole. Therefore as a start, I too would like to contribute in completing
one of the above mentioned features which are already been implementing(as I
read about them on mailing list archive). I noticed one simple thing that I
felt SC lacks and I hope to try more on that and write about it soon.
The same goes for video conferences. I already explained to Dmitry that
Lubomir was planning to work on that but since there seems to be a lot
of interest on the subject I'll start a new thread and try to work out
something that would allow everyone to get involved.
It is nice to hear that video conference is planned to be implemented.
That is an area which i like most simply because i feel it is interesting
and challenging too. Thank you for starting something like you have
mentioned, so that we too can get involved.
Having said all this, I just noticed the end of your subject line and
the GSoC 2009 part in particular. Note that even though we will
certainly apply, there's no guarantee we will be selected for
participation. If we are however, getting involved with the project
beforehand is definitely a great way of boosting your chances of being
selected on your turn.
Of course I wish that SC get selected as an mentoring organization this time
too, and no matter I get a chance or not there, surely it would be a great
pleasure and an experience for me to work with SC.
