My name is Richard Legendi and I saw that Eclipse ECF is in GSoC:
I would be interested in this topic, especially improving the IRC
This would be a great thing for the community. The IRC provider and UI
was done by a combination of committers, including me, Remy Suen, and
I would love to see improvement made the the IRC provider (the piece
that talks the IRC protocol)...and/or the IRC UI/client...but I cannot
offer mentoring for such a project, as I don't have the time to commit
to it...and do it justice (i.e. I don't want to be a mentor and not be
able to actually support the student/you).
I encourage one of the other ECF committers to make themselves as a
mentor for such a project...if you can/would be willing to do so please
make this known here on the mailing list.
I'm a PhD student and I have ~6 years of Java experience, including
some Eclipse plug-in development. A few years ago I way playing with
ECF and I liked it pretty much.
I would appreciate any help about what information should I provide in
order to be accepted as potential student.
Perhaps you could describe some of the improvements you would like to
make...so that all the committers, and other community members could
understand better what you have in mind.
