Well, with the exception of keeping my first patch simple and obviously
correct, I've already done most of this. However, here's a general
introduction to everyone knows who they're dealing with.

I'm an undergraduate student at the University of Central Florida in
Orlando, FL, USA. I'm not taking any classes now, but I am working
another programming job in addition to participating in SoC. The other
job is for a very small, local defense contractor working on a large
simulation system for the US military. In the past I've done some 3D
graphics research at the university; I did a poster presentation on
hardware-accelerated ray-casting for the 2005 Game Developer's
Conference. My computer-related interests are wide and varied, but
include version control (of course), computer language design and
implementation, 3D graphics/hardware acceleration, competitive
programming, and Linux systems administration. That list is by no means
exhaustive. Hobbies include playing computer and video games, reading
novels (mostly fantasy and science fiction) and, well, not much else.
You'd have a difficult time finding a less tanned person here in "sunny
Florida." ;)

My Summer of Code task is improving the interface of the Python
bindings, and I think the community will be fairly happy with the
results once things really get rolling. Right now I'm dealing with some
lower-level issues that are a bit harder to get "obviously correct" than
I initially expected. Progress is being made, though.

I may end up doing a disproportionate amount of work on the
nights/weekends due to needing to be at my other job when everyone else
is there; hopefully that won't prove to be too much of an issue.
