I can be a mentor for "Filesystem support" task. I have some experience in fs programming and I'm familiar with related kernel structures. It is common to see me online as well.
I really appreciate that you offered to volunteer as a mentor. Please create a short profile of yourself on our Wiki similar to this one: http://wiki.kolibrios.org/wiki/User:Hidnplayr
However I'd prefer to change "* Add XFS write support" task to "* Add UDF read/write support" because [...] Implementing writing without reading is much harder, I don't think such a task can attract students (anyway, there is NTFS).
The current page is just a copy of previous year's page (hidnplayr
just copied it from KSoC2013
, and then removed tasks that were already done). That's why XFS write support is written there - because it appeared on KSoC2013 page, and read support was already done by you in 2013. You are free to edit this page as you feel correct.
I'll update wiki page if nobody objects.
Sure, go ahead.
Why we should support another filesystem? ReiserFS for me not so important, sorry.
Maybe we should take care about more important points, like nVidia video drivers, NTFS file system improvements (encryption, write support), window manages improvements (windows "always on top", child windows), cool and usable audio player, search program, usable image editing program, library to save image as png/jpg, component menu and list, ability to rename files and folders in kernel and so on...
We are going back to the same discussion as last year: the tasks that appear on the list are not the tasks that are most important to do, but the tasks that we have available mentors for
. If you are willing to volunteer as a mentor for "nVidia video drivers
", we will certainly add it to the list.
