Although it's hard to come up with something better, I don't like
either – the former is too vague (what is "something"?) and the
latter, if set as the project's *FINAL* goal, presupposes little would
actually get done.
But these proposals might be interesting to consider if not for the
final evaluations, for the mid-term ones: the first is on June 30, the
other on July 28. For the first one, we could work with the concrete
goal of "compiling WebCore and solving linking issues with
Base/CoreBase"; for the second one, we could go with something more
abstract like "document in great detail what challenges lay ahead for
successfully porting WebCore" (a derivation of your "get a good idea"
formulation). This would be an actual contribution to the effort, and
would set a more detailed roadmap for the last month of work on GSoC.
I am just unsure whether it would be allowed/decent to only know the
final evaluation's goal well into the project's coding period.
Be prepared for slippage, and be willing to revise the plan as necessary, especially at midterm. Student learning is a primary goal of GSoC, so try to provide a learning experience.
