[Distutils] GSoC 2017 - Plan of Action for dependency resolver

Ok, so It appears besides me we need another one or two mentors to act as backup mentors. I guess in the event I’m not available or so. Probably ideally the backup mentor would either be familiar with pip’s codebase or else familiar with the ideas behind a backtracking resolver. I do have someone who can do it if needed, but I figured I’d poke distutils-sig first to see if anyone else wanted to do it as well.

They suggest that at least one mentor be exclusive to the student but that the other mentors can work with multiple students. For pip we only have the one (yay Pradyun) and I’m not mentoring anyone else so we should be good on the exclusive front (of course, if someone is interested to help with this, they can also be exclusive).

That would be awesome. I’m poking at the sites now to figure out everything I need to do to make sure all the administration bits are done properly, but having a double check that I don’t miss something would be great.

You'll be added to the Google GSoC-mentors list automatically if you start mentoring in the program, but you may want to mute it or not use your primary email address for it (it's high-traffic, very low signal to noise and you can't unsubscribe).

Ok cool.
