Rather than presuming ... which do you want to be, student doing the

I hadn't really considered that to be completely honest... I'm kind of at some
point in between needing a mentor for this, and wanting to mentor it. On the
one hand, I know what needs to happen, and how to do it to make this spin
happen so wouldn't really be sure what to do with a mentore... But on the
other hand, I don't really feel that I am qualified to be mentor to someone
else at the current time.
I suppose we can just leave it as "an idea I'm throwing out right now" :)
It sounds like a well-thought out proposal, so far. What we need is
KDE SIG mentor, who works on the support from the SIG overall. You
probably know more about that than I do :) and could likely fill the
mentor role, _if_ you weren't thinking for you to be the student.
If you are the student, great idea, do you happen to know who could be
mentor? If so, please invite said person to this list. :)
cc'd the KDE list. Any SIG member who is interested in mentoring or being
mentored on this project is welcome to subscribe to the summer-coding list and
join in on the discussion.
Regardless, you are doing the right thing, let's keep on moving,
get this in to the ideas page. I think we need to do some work to
1. "Template" (layout) for an idea page, along with a category.
2. Short list of ideas with link to invididual pages.
3. [[Summer Coding 2010 ideas]] is comprised of the above.
In fact, I just did that, also renamed [[Summer Coding ideas for
2010]] to [[Category:Summer Coding 2010 ideas]]:
If you look at the page source, it works now like this:
[[Category:Summer Coding 2010 ideas]]
transcludes in [[Summer Coding 2010 idea - RHQ - shortinfo]]
which has a link to =>
[[Summer Coding 2010 idea - RHQ]]
which transcludes in [[Summer Coding 2010 idea - RHQ - shortinfo]]
and links to [[Category:Summer Coding 2010 ideas]]
I'll put this all together in a template page that is at the top of
[[:Category:Summer Coding 2010 ideas]]. (The ':' after '[[' is the way
to link to a category inline without putting the linking page _in_ the
Annnnnd here we are:
