Karl Pietrzak's Google Summer of Code 2006 Proposal
About the Author
My name is Karl Pietrzak, and I am currently a senior at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY, where I will graduate with a BS in Computer Science in November 2006. I was born in Kraków, Poland and I came to the United States at the tender age of five. As such, I can speak, read, and write Polish, as well an a tinge of Spanish.
I am writing this document in order to receive at a SCons Google Summer of Code 2006 project. My interest in SCons started with my massive frustrations with the autotools (i.e., autoconf, automake, etc.); I feel the world could use something better, and SCons--with the power of Python behind--is that alternative.
Throughout the past few years of mySCons usage for both commercial and personal use, I have contributed a few small patches where I saw a bug or a need for a minor improvement. Now, however, I would love the opportunity to become a SCons developer so that my involvement becomes more substantial and permanent. I am very excited to get the opportunity to work on this proposal for this summer!
