SCons / GSoC2007 / CheckList

Checklist for Google Summer of Code 2007

  • <del>Gather the information about what should be contained in a proposal. It's currently scattered and needs to be collected in one place.</del> [2007-Feb-18: Done, at least a solid draft - JGN]
  • <del>Identify mentors right away</del> [2007-Mar-8 sample done]
  • <del>Possibly create a mentors@scons mailing list if we have enough.</del> [2007-Feb-22 done]
  • <del>Get ideas written up sooner</del> and figure out how to write better task suggestions.
  • Mine for ideas wherever we can:
  • <del>Ideas from last year.</del>
  • <del>Requests for enhancements and new features in the issues database.</del>
  • <del>Defects (bugs) in the issues database.</del>
  • <del>Advertisements on scons-dev and especially on scons-users mailing lists.</del>
  • Advertisements on scons.org and scons.tigris.org web pages.
  • Projects/companies that use SCons.
  • Where else? Update SummerOfCode if other sources are found so that we won't forget them in future.
  • Be prepared for Google's announcement:
  • Have the web pages done before the application period so Google can audit them.
  • <del>Get our application in to Google immediately, so they have plenty of time to look us over and confirm that we are a viable candidate.</del>
  • <del>Use a name that better says what we do</del> [2007-Mar-8 done]
  • Advertise our participation to drum up more submissions. We will be listed on Google's own heavily-advertised web pages, but there are plenty of other places:
  • <del>Mailing lists (scons-users primarily, but also scons-dev).</del>
  • <del>www.scons.org and scons.tigris.org web pages.</del>
  • Related third-party sources:
    • tigris.org
    • python.org (they mention Python-powered projects in their own SoC pages)
    • sourceforge.net (although that's a tenuous connection)
    • Projects/companies that use SCons, both web pages and mailing lists.
  • Where else? Update SummerOfCode if other sources are found so that we won't forget them in future.
