Hello Blender Developers,
My name is Nathan Craddock, I'm a computer science student at Brigham
Young University. After looking over many project ideas I have decided
that the "Outliner Improvements" project from the wiki would be a great
project for me based on my current abilities and interests. I just have
a few questions as I'm writing my proposal.
The description for the outliner project on the wiki mentions, "the
developers would work with users to find the most important usability
issues and fix them." By this I'm understanding developers to mean the
accepted GSOC student, along with their mentor, and other developers,
is this a correct understanding?
This leads to my understanding that the original project proposal will
not include details on every specific outliner improvement that will be
added. Further ideas and improvements will come from users during the
community bonding period as well as the three months of development. Do
I understand this correctly?
Second, for the project schedule. I can make a good guess right now on
what features and fixes could be implemented in which order, but will
the schedule also be flexible? Would the submission window from March
25th to April 9th be the recommended time to fix the schedule, or could
it also change after?
Overall I'm just curious on if the final accepted proposal is fixed, or
if the project plan and schedule will continue to be adjusted for this
specific outliner project based on user input and feedback.
