[GSoC] Google apps.

Dmitry Fomin
I have a question about Google apps project - "Implement small applications and corresponding
reusable libraries (Qt C++) for integrating with Google services like Mail (quick read/search
without going through IMAP), Todo:s, Buzz, import opml from Google Reader".

Which google services are intended to be implemented? Or the students should propose ideas?
Or it may be a several projects - some services for one student and other services to another
student?

Regards,

Dmitry

Unless I misremember, it's up to the students to create a proposal
that "sells" the project (and themselves). People at Google (or was it
the accepted organization? can't remember..) then vote on the
proposals, scores are counted and approval/rejection of the proposal
and the project is done.

For this particular project, I'd imagine a student should do some
pre-study to determine what services nicely overlap as far as google
APIs are concerned - I'd imagine gmail + todo to be a good choice, for
example, since google buzz apis seem unrelated (ostatus). Buzz
supports could be a separate project.

Different GSoC organisations approach differently but most of them
have only been hinting towards actual welcomed projects, not mandating
them.

If you think about future and want to explore Google
integration/syncing, I'd personally would be interesting on seeing
something that allows to sync both ways statuses of read/unread
messages and subscriptions in Google Reader with Maemo Feeds Ontology
(mfo) in Tracker master branch. That would be awesome. :)

Exactly, is up to the students to research and make a proposal, there's a lot of competition in GSoC, if the student does not do the homework, will be unlikely to be chosen.
