Hi developers,
I'm interested in the Google summer of code program and the ideas you
proposed. And I would like to learn more about it. The soc page suggests
that I can find the answers here.
I've scanned through the list of ideas and found them are generally moderate
in workload and should be quite suitable for a soc subject. I mean, I think
I will be able to handle one of which within my summer vacation. So I would
like to have a try.

Now, here come my questions:
First, how can I apply for your proposal as a student?
Should I apply to Google or to you subversion developers?
Am I supposed to prepare some formal material to qualify myself, such as a
detailed design proposal?
Perhaps I should introduce myself a bit. I'm a graduate student of
University of Science & Technology of China, majored in computer science.
I've gained some coding & debugging experiences during my campus days. I use
subversion to manage my projects. That's why I will be interested in your
I've gone through the materials you provided, such as those for the first
idea -- deselection interface for sparse directories, got the idea of the
proposal of "sparse directories" and the task that need to be worked out.
Although I don't think it is hard to implement, I currently still have no
idea of the detailed solution, since I'm just a user NOW, not a developer
Yes, I'm reading the 'Hackers Guide to Subversion'. And it would take me a
couple of days to understand the underlying mechanism of subversion. Will I
be adequate to apply for your proposal?

Eager for your suggestions.
Anyway, thanks for reading this long post. ^_^

Rui, Guo
