<b>An Eclipse Technology Project Proposal<br />
June 2006</b>
<p>The <a href="">Google Summer of Code</a> is an opportunity to for students to engage in summer projects
and receive funding (USD$4500) for their work from Google. The programme is structured around a student/mentor
arrangement in which a student receives help from a designated mentor for the duration of the project.
Projects are undertaken during the summer months, from June until the end of August.</p>
<p>Registration for the programme started in May. Approximately 75 students submitted project proposals
derived from a number of sources. Several prominent members of the Eclipse community agreed to
become mentors. As mentors, their first task was to participate in the selection process in which
the initial 75 projects were ranked according to interest, need, and ability of the student to
actually complete the project. Most of the 75 proposals were for interesting,
serious, and well thought out Eclipse-related projects. At the end the process, each of the mentors
signed up to participate in one or more of the projects. Finally, Google's process determined
that the eleven (11) highest-ranked projects would be funded for Eclipse.</p>
<p>This project is itself a container for other projects. These other projects are
<a href="#projects">described below</a>. Each of these projects has been proposed by
a student participating in the Google Summer of Code programme and is supported by one or
more mentors (as indicated below). The initial development effort will be complete at
the end of August 2006. At this time, the progress made in completing
these projects will be reviewed and an appropriate course of action will be determined. It
may be determined, for example, that the code should be moved into another Eclipse project.
Alternatively, we may decide that a project be permitted to continue with input from other
members of the community, or that the project be shutdown. </p>

<h3>Core Platform</h3>
<h3>Application Platform</h3>
<h2>Existing standards and projects leveraged</h2>
<p>This varies from SOC project to project. All projects leverage the Eclipse Platform. Some leverage other Eclipse
projects, including Mylar, Eclipse Communication Framework, and CDT.</p>
<p>The Summer of Code project is itself a mid-level project. Each of its subprojects will
have it's own directory structure.</p>
<h3>Interested parties</h3>
<p>This project will be managed by Wayne Beaton and Phillippe Ombredanne. All participating students
and mentors will be initial committers.</p>
