Again this year the Orion Project is benefiting from the Google Summer of Code program. We put up several suggestions on the Eclipse Foundation GSoC 2013 Ideas page, as did other Eclipse projects. As a potential student working on open source you can apply and describe how you would implement the desired features in a GSoC project. Through a back and forth then evaluation, students are paired up with Mentors before the term begins.
There’s a great description of the progress Chris has made on his blog post about midterm evaluations. He’s great to work with and extremely enthusiastic about working on Open Source and we’re lucky to have the opportunity to get this feature into Orion via the GSoC program. Looking forward to the feature being completed by end of term!
