You should preferably mark it public, and give a link here, so that
everyone, even
those not registered on melange can read and review your proposal.

================ Proposal Review ===============================

Your summary seems fine. You could expand on the deliverables a little more.
What is suggest is you separate the deliverables from the plan and technical
details. What will you deliver? That is what should come there, not *how*.

You can/should explain the how as a subsection under your plan. Also,
what library do you intend to use? And how?

In the summary and plan you state you wish to refactor the current code. But
you provide no idea at all about what is wrong and how you plan to fix it.

I found your timeline lacking in a few aspects:
1. The final selections are announced on 21st April. Your timeline
starts on 19th
2. What do you plan on doing between now and 21st April?
3. The community bonding period is an important part of the program.
It is completely
missing in your proposal.
4. You are already working on, and have almost completed the
refactoring patchset. I
don't see why you'd need 2 weeks to refactor it more. If you have any
further plans
about changes, you should state them in the proposal.
5. I don't see the point of spending one week of coding time in making a design
document. This is should be ready before coding begins.
6. I'm glad you're upfront about your exams midway through the program. We can
work around it without any hiccups.

Speaking through experience, I'm not so sure if having a part-time internship
simultaneously along with GSoC is a good idea. It usually takes a lot more
time than you expect right now. And neither will your internship be
any easier on
you. In the end, you will either forego one for the other, or end up sick.

Also, in my opinion your timeline needs some more thought and work. And, again,
from experience, make it fine grained. Think more about each step and
you'll find
you've missed something, or the times just don't add up correctly.

Usually, slots of 2 weeks are preferred. That also matches the timeline you
suggest for discussing things over with your mentor.

As suggested in the FAQ, you should really keep the time between suggested
down and firm pencils down to clean up your code and wrap things up. You
*will* need, and I repeat, you *will* need the whole week to wrap up
and get your
code ready for merging.

Thanking You,
