[erlang-questions] Fedora GSoC 2011 and Erlang-related proposal
Mon Apr 4 16:20:44 CEST 2011
Fist of all sorry if you received multiple copies of this message.
I'm participating as a mentor from Fedora Community in the Google
Summer of Code 2011. My proposal is to integrate further Erlang with
RPM (automatic provides/requires generation, live upgrades within
init-script's reload/restart commands, creating RPM package directly
from the rebar and perhaps something else). Unfortunately the deadline
is near (08-04-2011) and nobody has volunteered so far.
In order to achieve the desired goals the participant
- *must* be a Fedora user. Fedora 15 is preferred (alpha version was

goals and motivation, GitHub account, whatever else you think is
relevant. Please don't be shy if you think you're not a Great Rock
Star Developer - the main goal of GSoC is to teach you something new,
not to examine you. If you know a person who might be interested -
forward him this message, please.
Also please note that I *cannot* guarantee that this proposal will be
finally approved - there are many other competing proposals (you may
chose one of them instead of mine one) and some of them are very
Anyway we should try.
With best regards, Peter Lemenkov.
