Personal Information

Your Name

Your e-mail address and google id.

Other contact info: This can be IRC/instant message/twitter/ or whatever you want. Google does not give out personal info to organizations, so this will be used to keep in touch with your mentors and org admin.

Your Project's Title


A short description, including your basic goals and focus.

(The rest should be entered in the "detailed description" box.)

Benefits to the Parrot VM and Open Source Community

Who will benefit from your project and in what ways? Describe the likely user-base and what means they might currently be using to accomplish the same ends. Are you proposing an incremental improvement, a fundamentally new approach, or an aggregation of existing tools/ideas?


Describe the quantifiable results and goals. Be as specific as possible. Seriously, give more details than you think are necessary.

Project Details

You can't be too detailed. Describe prior art and the concepts on which your project is based. What is new or different about your approach which wasn't done/possible before? Do you have any preliminary findings or results which suggest that it is possible and likely to succeed?

Note any uncertainties or aspects which depend on further research or experiments. What is your plan for dealing with snags, unforeseen difficulties, or setbacks? How useful will your results be if (when) not everything works exactly as planned?

Project Schedule

What are the milestones? Be sure to include dates which are compatible with the GSoC timeline. You must have a detailed description of what you plan to do each week of the Summer of Code.

References and Likely Mentors

Which managers and/or likely mentors have you contacted about your plans? Who was the most helpful? Have any of them offered to mentor your project?


All Parrot projects should use the Artistic 2.0 license.


Who are you? What makes you the best person to work on this project? What experience do you have with Parrot and other Open Source projects? What development tools and methods do you use? Have you previously been responsible (either as an employee/volunteer/student) for a project of this size?


Are you an eligible student and do you meet google's legal requirements? Do you have the paperwork to prove it? (Note that you only have to prove it to Google, but we want to be sure that paperwork will not interfere with your project after it has been selected.)
