[Subclipse-dev] Welcome Google SoC Students

The Google SoC application process has officially concluded. Our
project was allocated a total of 2 slots for this year. This is the
first time our project has participated in Google SoC. I am
personally looking forward to working with the students and helping
them bring their project ideas to fruition.

You can see the applications that have been accepted this year here:


The first project is to be able to show revision history as a revision
graph. The student for this project will be Alberto Gimeno and I will
be the mentor for this project. This is a very exciting project as
this has been a long requested feature by Subclipse users. This is a
fairly challenging project and Alberto has some great ideas for how to
bring this feature to Subclipse.

The second project is to implement the Eclipse File System and
HistoryProvider API's in Subclipse. The student for this project will
be Thaminda Karunanayake and Eugene Kuleshov will be the mentor for
this project. This is a good SoC project. We have had several people
contact us in the past about supporting these API's. When we have
support for them, it makes it much easier for third parties to build
applications that get Subversion information via Subclipse. More
importantly, it allows these applications abstract that logic so that
they could be talking to CVS or Subversion, or something else. This
is the kind of feature that would make Subclipse a better project but
would be hard for us to normally justify the time to spend on
implementing it. Nonetheless, having this feature can really help us
to grow our ecosystem and extend our reach in the Eclipse platform.

Students, I started to put together some information on developing for


There is good information on that page, but I sort of ran out of time
and did not go quite as in depth as I had hoped. Just please ask
questions as you get them. I am typically online in IRC in the
#subclipse chat room. I am on the US East Coast and available during
normal working hours for that timezone. As much as possible, I would
encourage, beg, you to use this mailing list:
dev_at_subclipse.tigris.org. We have four regular committers that have
agreed to serve as mentors for SoC. They are myself, Eugene, Steve
Elsemore and Brock Janiczak. If you use the mailing lists, it allows
us to increase our bandwidth by enabling any or all of us to help you

Anyway welcome. In the time between now and the start of coding, we
hope you get some time to checkout the code and start looking at it.
It would also be great to hear from you in this mailing list and start
getting to know you and offer you whatever assistance we can.
