Re: [MirageOS-devel] [GSoC '17] Questions about Proposal Review


apologies for the delay. I was on holidays last week. 

There appear to be two different routes for having my proposal reviewed by the Xen project: either reaching out to my mentor through a public channel (like github or this mailing list), or submitting a proposal draft through the GSoC website.

The final application needs to be made through the website, otherwise you won't qualify. We encourage applicants to discuss their proposals with mentors or publicly on the list.

Ideally I'd like to have my proposal reviewed by as many people as possible, but I don't know if this anyone's responsibility besides my mentor's. Accordingly, I have four questions:
  1. When I submit a proposal draft through the GSoC website, who reviews it?
Google and all the mentors. But it is necessary to poll the system, which makes this kind of hard.
  1. Is one channel more apporpriate for requesting review than the other?
If you want an early review, you really want to send it to your mentor and/or on the mailing list. In the latter case, CC the mentor.
  1. Is it appropriate to request review from community members other than my mentor? For example, are Mindy and Lars able to give feedback as GSoC coordinators for Xen?
Sure, but people may be busy.
  1. I would like to use sharelatex's (newly added!) commenting features to iterate on my proposal. Are the people who will be reading it OK using this?
If you require someone to use a system they are not used to, they may not look at it. I would recommend e-mail or google docs.
