Hello devs,

I read the last year's GSOC page and proposal and now I guess I have s
brief idea about the project. And I am very interested in contributing to
I today mailed massimo and waiting for his reply.

But I cannot find the reports of the last year's project. So I have some
doubts regarding what should be done next. If anyone of you can give me a
small task to test my skills it will be really good.

Also I would like to talk about the project proposal to be submitted next
