This is great news!

I think Python is really optional with this project, but you'd have to
get more familiar with Scheme along the way, even when it's valid to
give a certain bias to the LaTeX side.

As far as I can see the basic outline is the following::

  * Until March 13 we can discuss a project and application outline. I
    will be available for discussing anything relating to the content of
    ScholarLY and the GSoC project. But I'm not there to do the work for
    you (this disclaimer is more directed towards myself than you ;-) )
  * Then you submit your application to Google.
  * I *think* (but there seems to be something missing on that after
    that Google first evaluates the application and then passes the
    successful applicants to the mentoring organization. If we then
    should happen to have more accepted applications than slots we would
    have to discuss that among the developers.

I suggest that we keep this thread on the list for a little while so
others may comment as well. And if nothing speaks against it we should
continue discussing this in private. Maybe you can prepare a kind of
"statement" telling me how you use ScholarLY and how and where *you*
would like it to be improved/extended.

The nice thing about this as a GSoC project is that there are many items
we can put on the list that may or may not be achieved without
disturbing the usefulness of the project. However, I think there is one
rather strict requirement: At the end we should have a robust LaTeX
package to make use of the annotations.

Best wishes
