Hi SIP Communicator again!
First of all, this is not about GSoC at all.
Our department (Department of Computer Science and Engineeering, University
of Moratuwa <http://www.cse.mrt.ac.lk/>) is going to introduce the Open
Source world to it's Level 3 students. The process goes like this.
There are 100 students who will be doing their programming project this
year. Up to now students did projects designed and managed and implemented
by their own. This year things going to be changed. Department expects to
select small sub projects from existing open source projects and assign
students to those. It will be an individual project.
I talked to the department officials and informed them about the SIP
Communicator. We are very happy if we could get some projects from the SIP
Communicator as well.
The complexity of a project could be treated as of half the complexity of a
The duration will be a semester (15 weeks)
No need to create separate branches in repository for these projects.
Students will create patches and will send them to you.
No need to assign any mentors from SIP Communicator side. But students may
ask for guidance in the dev list.
Evaluation of the success of these projects will be done by the department.
Comments from the SIP Communicator about the patches created by students
will be very helpful in the process.
Project which involve with some GUI designing will get extra attention.
Can the community come up with some suitable project ideas? Hoping to have
some positive response from the community about this. This may help the SIP
Communicator to attract new contributors to it and expand its functions.
