Google Season of Docs program inquiry

Hi LLVM community,

(if you never heard Google Season of Docs, please ignore)

My name is Joe, who is a senior static analysis software engineer and also have lots of technical writing experiences (e.g., technical book writer, research paper, customer documentation).

I am sending this letter to query a generic question about GSoD application. GSoD requires each applicant to submit a project proposal [1]. Does LLVM community expect applicants to publicly discuss their proposals in this maillist? At least I know that this is the way many open source orgs use in Google Summer of Code program.

Regards,
Joe

Hi Joe,

I don’t know about how the community necessarily expects GSoD to work, but for GSoC there was certainly plenty of discussion of project proposals on the mailing list. Certainly, I can’t see how it can hurt to discuss something on here.
