Subject: Google Summer of Code mentors wanted

Google Summer of Code mentors wanted

Hello again,

On the SummerOfCode2011 page, we currently have three candidate mentors
listed. That's not anywhere near enough. If you have some spare time
during the summer, and you're very much involved in rockbox, please
consider volunteering to be a mentor.

While knowledge and skills in the area of one or more of the proposed
ideas is of course useful, it's not required. The mentor isn't there to
answer all sorts of technical questions about the code (students are
expected to interact normally with the community, so they should ask
those questions the regular way on irc or this mailing list). What the
mentor *is* there for is to make sure the student sends in regular
progress reports, check that these progress report match the project
plan, and talk to the student in case of problems.

If you're willing to spend time on this, please add your name near the
bottom of in the Candidate
Mentors section.


"Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are,
by definition, not smart enough to debug it." - Brian W. Kernighan
