I have school until.. 9 june.. then I have 4 exams until 29 june.

So its going to be a very busy summer for me... and I am aware of that.
I already spent the last weeks trying to advance school works, so that my
SoC performance doenst suffers from it.

Best regards,
André Susano Pinto

> Hi students,
> I hope that you are all ready for the start of
> Summer of Code! I see some of you have been active
> on IRC and have already been committing to your
> branches -- that's great! I also hope you've started
> interacting with your mentors (if you haven't already,
> you should ASAP). If you have any obligations (like
> exams or holidays) that might effect your progress
> this summer, please send a mail to this list and let
> us know.
> There are a few things you should know about:
> 1) Most of you already have SVN branches. If you don't have
> one yet, please talk to either your mentor, or to Martin
> Poirier (theeth) for access to a branch. Be sure to ask
> your mentor about merging, and be sure to merge your branch
> often with the trunk revision.
> 2) There is a wiki page for this year's SoC:
> http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/GSoC/2009
> Each of you should creat a link to your own page from there that
> you can modify (please talk to Martin (theeth) or Ton (kaito) on
> irc for wiki permissions). You can create that page and
> describe your project goals and your project. If you would like to
> see examples of what students from previous years have done,
> checkout the links on these pages:
> http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/GSoC/2008
> http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/GSoC/2007
> http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/GSoC/2006
> http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/GSoC/2005
> 3) Our SoC 'Ideas page' had the following condition for
> students: "You must be willing to submit weekly progress
> reports and be available for weekly IRC meetings".
> Every Friday, we require you to create an informal
> weekly report, sent to this mailing list, outlining:
> a) What you did in the previous week;
> b) What you plan to do in the following week;
> c) Describe any issues you are having that may
> require extra attention;
> d) Let us know whether you feel that you are on
> schedule, ahead of schedule, or behind schedule. If
> you are behind schedule, please let us know what we
> can do together to get things back on track.
> Part a) above is something you may also want to
> put in your wiki page as a part of a developer's
> log.
> I should note that I get a bit cranky when reports
> are late so be sure to send them to the list on
> Friday!
> Our weekly IRC meetings are on Sundays (the only day
> of the week that most of our developer base is able to
> meet due to timezones). The channel is #blendercoders
> and the time is 16:00 CET (you'll need to figure out
> your local time from that). Usually Ton will ask you
> for a brief summary of how the week went, and other
> developers may ask questions about your project.
> I know this is a bit redundant since the information
> will already be in your Friday report, but we
> find it a useful way to ensure that students have
> some good "face-to-face" time with the Blender
> development community. We of course encourage you
> to spend time in the channel whenever you would
> like to discuss your project, coding, or Blender.
> 4) Generally we have found that students who show a
> pattern of unresponsive behavior will usually end up
> having unsuccessful projects. So please, if we ask
> something from you via email, such as "where is your
> Friday report" please respond within a day. If a student
> proves to be unresponsive on more that one occasion,
> there is a good likelihood that we will ask Google not
> to pay them (this has happened in the past). If it turns
> out that you have an emergency that makes you unresponsive,
> it really only takes a few seconds to email your mentor
> about it, and this is the least we expect. It's a privilege
> to get paid to work on an open source project for a summer,
> so please don't waste this opportunity by being neglectful
> of a common courtesy.
> 5) Okay, enough heavy stuff -- any questions or comments?
> I have a nick (cwant) semi-permanently joined to the
> #blendercoders IRC channel (however, I am away in Chicago
> this week until May 25th), so if you have any questions feel
> free to join IRC and ask, and I will answer when I become
> active (many other helpful developers are active there too,
> so whenever possible you can freely ask questions in that
> channel).
> Happy coding to all of you, and here's to a successful
> Summer of Code!
> Regards,
> Chris
