Hi Chris,

I'm Arystan. My project is python import/export API.

Have you ever used subversion before?
Yes, I know the basics well

> What OS do you use for development?
Debian Linux

> What compiler do you use?

> Have you built the blender sources before?
yes, with scons

> Do you have an IRC nickname?

> What is your p.b.o username? (see above)

> Will you be working from trunk (2.49) or from the 2.5 branch (I assume most of you will work on 2.5, if you don't know, talk to your mentor).
>From 2.5. Python api is for 2.5

> Would you like to have your branch now (if you plan on starting working in advance or if you already have) or only later (around the official GSOC start date)?
Yes, I'd like to start asap. Then I'll be able to convert more scripts
and do other useful work.

I'd like to thank blender devs for giving me a chance to work in your team!
I'll do my best to be productive.
