Good news everybody :-)
I found out yesterday that my proposal was one of ten from the Debian project selected for the Google Summer of Code 2009. So right now I’m getting pretty excited to start working on things.
I have quite a few things to do once exams finish – they begin with e-mailing the KDE-Bindings mailing list and finding the most appropriate home for a code repository. Likely this will be in the kde-bindings subversion, if I can get a commit bit there.
Another thing I need to do is contact the current maintainer of perlqt4 and make some plans there. I’ll probably need to take a first look at that module too.
In all, there were about 1000 accepted proposals and 4000 total. In the Debian project, we had 40 proposals and 10 finally accepted, so the odds were roughly the same as the average. I’m glad I get to work on something I love for the summer, but right now I’ve gotta focus on exams.
The good news is that exams will finish in a week, and then I can get coding!
