Hello Melissa ,
Today I was writing my GSoD proposal application , while I tried to copy / paste my exact Google docs proposal in the application description , but even after clearing all the formatting , the application form is stating that the " response is too large , try shortening some answers " Now many people have complained regarding this issue on the season of docs channel , so it means the issue is upsetting everyone .
So I wanted to request if it's fine I also mention the link to my google docs Proposal where it is explained in much more detail. In application I have almost shortened half of my proposal therefore it has started to lose its minute explanatory details .
Thanks , Mrinal Tyagi
