For students applying for LXDE Google Soc 2010, please read this mail
carefully because it's important for you.
We have to work together to come up with a better solution for all of
us and I need your help.
We're in a difficult condition now.
I found that some students seem to apply for the same projects.
That means, most of the projects are left untouched, and it's possible
that most of the students cannot get what they want.
Of course for students applying for the same project, we can review
all proposals, try to find the best one, and reject others.
However I believe that it's not what we'll like to see. In that case
all of us can get minimal benefit. Although this is quite normal, but
I think that it's possible for us to come up with a better solution
together. A better way, IMHO, might be to ensure that every student
can get a, maybe not favorite, but still acceptable project, so all of
them are guaranteed to learn skills, experience, and also earn money
in this summer. At the same time LXDE can get most improvement. So all
of us get maximal benefit and the expected benefit is guaranteed.
Is this solution acceptable? Or does anyone receiving this mail have
Before start the review, to make application fair enough and protect
the applicants, I won't disclose details about who already applied to
what project and the content of proposals unless with the applicants'
permission. Here I want to ask every students, do you guys have other
interested projects? Apart from what you're already applying for, do
you have any alternatives? It's acceptable by google for a student to
apply for several projects at the same time. So if you have
alternative projects to work on, maybe you'll have no competitor for
the alternative ones.
Suggestions, ideas, and helps are needed. Thank you all.
