Difference: GSoCApplicationTemplate2009 (r6 vs. r5)
This template is meant as a general guideline to help students create an application for the Google Summer of Code 2009
After you have applied, come say hi to us in our IRC channel! Communication is important to us!
Please try to provide as much information as possible to convince us that you will be able to complete this project successfully
When answering these questions, please try to explain as good as possible and "sell yourself" as we might use the answers you provide as basis for selecting whom to accept as students. Your answers will not become public, but will be read by Rockbox committers/gsoc mentors.
Short summary about what you plan to do. This should describe your project in a few lines in a not too technical way
The detailed description should consist of several parts:
Describe your project in as much detail as possible (only relevant details, no need to mention e.g. that you will set up a build environment) Try to subdivide the project in logical sub-projects, and describe them separately
Briefly explain why your project is useful for rockbox. Try to "sell" your project to us. Why would we pick your project before anyone else's? It is likely that we will receive (much) more applications than we can accept, so we will only pick the top contenders.
Milestones and Project plan (this can follow the task subdivision, but this is not absolutely necessary)
Subdivide the working period in several parts, not more than one to three weeks long. For each of these parts, describe what you plan to do in this time, and which deliverables will be finished at the end of it. We know and understand that there will inevitably be deviations from these time estimates, but please try to make them accurate as possible.
