[SoC] Progress Reports?

Hi guys,
I was curious how the other GSoC projects worked out. I've seen
announcements for Ariel and Ruport which appear to be doing well.
Florian said that Rudebug is almost ready. What about the others?

Just in case folks missed my end of SoC report on O'Reilly for Ruport:

I too would be interested in seeing links or summaries of how the
other projects went, now that the dust is starting to clear :slight_smile:

GlimR (OpenGL GUI toolkit in Ruby) dev chiming in.

First, it's been great, thanks to everyone involved!

I got to around 80% of my project goals. The foundation is done,
advanced things are missing or broken and there's certainly
room for optimization.

There's a SoC post mortem in my dev blog -- way things went
and what I learned:

Gregory pretty much told everything about the actual SoC process
in his post. Fun way to spend the summer, check. Race to 0.1.0 for
new projects, check. Slow shipping, check :slight_smile:

Sorry for late reply, I did not have an internet connection for a while.
I plan to write some ex-post notes on my work, but as of now, I have a dummy minimal screencast[1] if someone wants to get a clue on what I was doing. Which is, automagic administration interface for Nitro/Og.

The video is in flash (istanbul crashes on my box, someone has to rewrite that in ruby sooner or later :wink: and does not show all the features (i.e. changing controls for a field, hiding/reordering them and so on) but could give you a hint.
Also, please ignore the slowness, it is due to wink[2] (too much disk access probably, maybe I should get a new disk after 5 years ).

Basically, the thing is working and most of the proposed points are done, but it is still fragile, many enhancements can be done easily, I think, and some harder ones would be nice.

Work will continue on it, anyway, even if SoC is ended :slight_smile:
