I'm planning to apply for Google Summer of Code this year, and am
interested in helping cairo (partly because at least the name is
familiar to me as a Gtk+ user (and I compiled it as dependency on my
machine) and partly because I'm interested in learning/doing some
graphics stuff in general), and some of the projects on your ideas list
sound appealing (like the lookup-table thing and the polygon composition).
But I want to know beforehand if you have any special
expectations/preferences on student applications so I can only apply if
I have chances of being accepted ;)
As stated before, I have interest in graphics, but not yet much
experience on the implementor's side (only some user experience from SVG
"coding"). With programming in general (C included) and things like
make/autotools/shells I have a good deal of experience, and also some
basic knowledge about algorithms and datastructures (participated twice
at the IOI).
Do you think I could find something to do for me and learn everything
needed, or do you look for someone with already cairo/graphics experience?
Thanks and greetings from Austria,
Done: Bar-Sam-Val-Wiz, Dwa-Elf-Hum-Orc, Cha-Law, Fem-Mal
To go: Arc-Cav-Hea-Kni-Mon-Pri-Rog-Tou
