  • Gale 20 Mar 09, 19:35 UTC: James, an excellent read, but is this a good idea? As a casual prospective student reading this, unaware of how open source works, might I think "Uh? are there splits among the developers?". People will find this without you pointing people to it privately. Many times better IMHO, to modify GSoC Selection Criteria (currently linked to on GSoC Skills and GSoC FAQ) to be explicitly a blog page with developer "takes" on what will influence us into selecting one applicant rather than another. Otherwise, as I said I think we should just delete GSoC Selection Criteria for the same reasons we deleted the "Writing Proposals" page - having a page that is merely a link to the ideas of some other organisation doesn't look terribly good.
