Google has finally launched the WebApp for the project administrators for its Summer of Code initiative. I logged in, thinking that Bricolage might get five or ten applications.
No, there were 48! I’ve just started going through them, but the table to the left contains a quick summary of what came in.
That leaves 42 applications! (Huh, and 42 happens to be the answer. Imagine that.) After a quick survey, the table below summarizes how they break down in terms of the projects and number of proposals. There are more than 42 here because quite a few applications group together a number of tasks.
|Apache 2/mod_perl 2/Windows Port||4|
|Modernize the Installer||3|
|Hierarchical Bulk Editing||2|
|Category Permission Inheritance||2|
|Site Tagging and Rollback||2|
|Bulk Media Uploading||1|
|Apache 2/mod_perl 2 port||1|
|Rewrite Bricolage in PHP||1|
|Element Occurrence Specification||1|

|Concurrent Checkouts & Conflict Resolution||1|
|New Sample Templates||1|
|Add Middle Initials to Contributors||1|
I am stunned and amazed by the sheer number of proposals the project received. There are quite a few good ones, too. I’ve told Google that I can handle five or six projects, but it might end up being a lot! I’ll have to really pare them down this weekend. So fare I’ve eliminated a dozen or so that are simple one-liners (such as, “Port Bricolage to mySQL[sic]”), but now the real work of comparing and contrasting begins—especially for all of those MySQL proposals!
