Hello all,

I registered on the site, but wanted to send a message to the list as well: I'm interested in mentoring GSoC this summer, particular in areas related to character encoding and Unicode. I have over 16 years of hands-on experience with Unicode and complex character encodings, have been programming in Lisp for over 25 years, and have been doing a lot of NLP work in non-English languages, in Lisp, for the last two. I have experience with both CCL's and SBCL's character set implementations, and am working on a CDR to try and standardize the representation of Unicode character names across implementations (e.g., SBCL and CCL use different naming conventions: I've modified my local SBCL to use CCL's, just to make my code easier to move between implementations.)

Many thanks.
