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


Thanks for the suggestion! I have added a link to the live document to the top of my proposal. I have also changed the draft link in the GSoC system to point to the google doc instead of the sharelatex document, as google docs seems to be the preferred system. It appears that those who left feedback are notified when I reply, since Thomas and I were able to collaborate in real time regarding some of the comments he made, but just in case that was a fluke, I have left replies seeking additional clarification on some of the feedback. Thank you Lars and Thomas for taking the time to read my proposal, it's great to be involved with such a supportive mentorship community.

can you please go to https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/dashboard/organization/5654744694521856/proposal/5718648026038272/ and click want to mentor. You will have to accept the mentor invite first, I sent you though. 


Thank you. I see that Thomas made some comments already. 

Also, you are probably aware that you will have to submit a PDF for the final application (by April 3rd). I would suggest to add a link to the life google doc at the top as the PDF likely won't be editable post the 3rd. I am not quite sure how the UI for https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com looks on your side: google constantly changed the old system and I expect is doing the same for the new one.

The google doc should have the same content as the PDF at the deadline. You can then use the life document, to track/record changes, make modifications if there are unforeseen circumstances, add lessons learned, strike through work items that have been completed (and/or link to commits, pull requests, ...), etc. You can use it as a life document to track progress. That helps you and your mentor.

Thank you Lars for clarifying those things for me. I have already submitted a draft for review through the GSoC website (hosted on sharelatex), but per Lars' advice, I have also made the draft viewable as a google doc here. I will kindly accept feedback from anyone who cares to give some, however in particular I would appreciate feedback from my prospective mentors, Thomas and Mindy.
