Subject Re: Accumulo Google Summer of Code

For future reference, please use or for such questions. While there is a project 
lead, nearly all pieces of Apache Accumulo operation are handled by the 
group as a whole.

Looking at the timeline for GSOC, you have until this Friday to submit 
an application. Also look at the following for more information [1], [2].

As you gathered, we tried to mark some tickets we already had created as 
good candidates for students to work on; however, these are not at all 
binding of what you could work on (in fact, I might encourage you to 
think outside of the box).

dev@a.a.o is probably the best list for you to use as you work through 
your proposal, asking the community what constitute a good GSOC project.

Thanks for reaching out!
