Hello all,

I would like to bring up the discussion of whether our project should
apply for GSoC this year. Jakub Jermar (HelenOS) encouraged me to do so
and I like this idea. The application of mentoring organizations is open
until 9th of March:

I propose to select 5 working topics as potential GSoC projects, taking
our "challenges" and "roadmap" as inspiration:

Of course, we are open to further suggestions. If you have one, please
go ahead and tell us! For each of the topics, we will need to provide a
rationale about

* Why do we think it is a good idea to pursue the work,
* Where it fits into the scope of our project, and
* Why we think it is feasible to achieve the goal during the summer.

Furthermore, we should try to plan ahead working steps as far as we see
them. For doing this, the GitHub issue tracker would be the ideal place.

One particular topic that Jakub brought up is combining Genode with the
HelenOS kernel (called SPARTAN). Personally, I think this would be a
technically intriguing topic and also a good opportunity to cultivate
the relationship between the HelenOS team and Genode.

So what do you think? Do you agree that GSoC participation is a good
idea? Are you interested in playing a role in it, as mentor, or student
participant? I would be glad about feedback from you.
