Hello everyone,

I am sending my bonding period report (May 17 - 6 June), more detailed 
version can be found in the project wiki: https://trac.osgeo.org/grass/wiki/

What did I complete during the Bonding period?

   * Introduced myself in dev list, get in contact with my mentors

After being accepted as a student for GSoC 2021, on May 25 I introduced 
myself and my project to grass dev lists (1) and set up the video call with 
my mentors  - Anna Petrasova, Vaclav Petras, Martin Landa, and Stefan 
Blumentrath. We met on May 25 and discussed various Single-Window GUI 
options and their possible shortcomings. We decided to set up a parallel 
environment determined for the independent Single-Window GUI development.

   * Prepared the wiki page about the project and set up the GitHub 
   repository of the project 

I created my project wiki page (2) and added the link to the GSoC 2021 
Accepted proposals page (3). I already have GitHub GRASS fork in usage (4) 
so I only added the link to the GSoC 2021 Accepted proposals page (3), to my
wiki page (2) and shared it with my mentors.

   * Two PRs regarding Single-Window GUI already merged

The first PR ​https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/1591
(https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/1591) deals with general refactoring. 
The second one creates the parallel environment where I am gonna further 
independently develop the Single-Window GUI, see ​https://github.com/OSGeo/
grass/pull/1604(https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/1604). I also created 
the PR https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/1598
(https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/1598) enhancing GRASS for version 8.0. 
It implements easier switching between mapsets in different locations as we 
would like GRASS to be as user-friendly as possible. All mentioned PRs are 
already merged to master. Meantime, I played with wx.aui demo in order to 
create a prototype of the Single-Window GRASS GUI.

Plans for the next week:

   * Start developing the Single-Window GUI 
   * Integrate main parts that do not involve much refactoring 
   * Have a meeting with mentors on Wednesday
