Hello World! I am Hrushikesh, interested to work on the Git Automatic Cache Maintenance. Below is the link of my GSoC proposal. My GSoC proposal is not yet complete. I need to add the architecture of JGit along with it’s timeline. The timeline stated in the current proposal is not accurate but gives an overview of what I would be working on.
Would love to have feedback on this project proposal for GSoC.
Thank you and congratulations @Hrushi20 for making your draft proposal available for review.
I will encourage the community to look at it and review it.
Thank you for sharing your document. As you can see from my couple of comments, I read it with great interest. And I learned a couple of things on Git as it is not my speciality.
I have a general comment on your proposal: try to make the structure clear (section, subsections). Try to export your document in PDF and look at it a “helicopter view”. Are the parts/components clearly identifiable? Not critical at this early stage but it will make the task of the final reviewers easier.
I’ll work on my proposal. I realized there is no proper structure in my proposal i.e identification of sections and subsections. Also I didn’t know the jenkins wiki is deprecated. Is
https://wiki.jenkins.io/ website not used anymore? I’ll update my proposal and get back to you with a stronger proposal
Ref wiki jenkins
Indeed a couple of years ago, the Jenkins community decided to move away from the confluence wiki and use an SCM based system. Thus we use a static generated site for Jenkins.io and the plugin documentation is based on the plugin’s README.
We keep a frozen wiki snapshot for historical and migration reasons.
So documentation “produced” by your project could be plugin specific (stored/referenced in the README) and/or a more general purpose documentation (How-To style) in jenkins.io. The strategies and details can be discussed with the mentor.
For completeness, while accessible via jenkins.io, the plugin index/documentation is generally considered a separate documentation sub-system.
Hope that this clarifies the documentation part.
Hello! I will be very happy to receive comments about my proposal.
@EmineSener Since the deadline is literally a few hours from now, if I were you I’d directly upload my proposal to Jenkins via GSoC’s site, and not wait for any review comments at this moment.
