Re: [mylyn-dev] Interested in participating in GSoC - Introduction

Hi Jordan,

thanks for your interest in the project. I have updated the project description on the ideas page slightly since task-based branching alone probably wouldn't be sufficient for an entire summer of code project. As a start, I'd recommend reading through https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=309578 and related bugs. It's important that your proposal includes some of your own ideas how to improve the current tooling and integration.

Hi, my name is Jordan Victor and I'm a CompSci student from Montreal, Quebec. I go to Concordia University and have used Eclipse extensively in the last 2 years. Of course I would be very interested in working with Eclipse on a GSoC project this summer to learn about open source development and give something back to an organization who's application has helped me a lot.

Looking through the project ideas the one that interests me the most is Mylyn: Automated Task-branching support for EGit. This last year I've been getting to use git a lot and this seems like an excellent opportunity to apply what I know and see what I need to learn.

I'm looking for any information I can for how to prepare for applying to this project, what it's specifically about and anything else you can think of.

I look forward to hearing from you soon and hopefully I'll be working with you this summer.

Sincerely, Jordan Victor
