Re: Back to pick up the soc project I applied -- "deselection interface of sparse-directories"

Timmy, your proposal looks pretty decent to me.... but I'm just one
person on the project. I expect Karl has more feedback for you, since
this is more his area of expertise.

Subversion developers: we have 6 student proposals so far, and the
deadline is next Tuesday. You should take a look if you haven't done
so already: http://code.google.com/soc/2008/svn/open.html

Students: I think there's sometimes some confusion over what a
"proposal" is. A proposal isn't simply writing "I'm interested in
working on X, here's my resume." A proposal needs to have much more
than that: it needs to have details about exactly how the problem
will be tackled, potential issues, a timeline for work... some sort of
proof that the student has been thinking about the problem.
