Subject Re: GSoC final report

You have done an excellent work Grzegorz. Unified expressions will 
simplify usage of Cocoon and your refactoring will simplify development 
of Cocoon. Above that you have done a lot of good community and 
infrastructure work and helped revitalizing the community. Thanks to all 
your discussions Cocoon has been rather active during the summer.

During GSoC you had to force yourself to go in to part of Cocoon where 
only the bravest dare to go, you killed some of the mosters that where 
lurking there making it safer for the rest of us and managed to survive 
the process ;)

I would guess that GSoC was both tougher and more rewarding than you had 
expected. During the summer you had to deal with the challange of 
applying theory on complex "real world" problems, to prioritze between 
what is important and what is not. Most of your co-students will not get 
these learnings until they do they master thesis or start to do work or 

It has been a pleasure to see how you have matured and grown in 
confidence both as a program developer and as a community participant.

For me it has taken a lot of work to participate in all the technical 
discussions. But it has of course been very flattering to se my name and 
suggestions cited all the time ;) And to see my vague suggestion, be 
concretizied, improved and end up becomming working code.

While I have lot of expeience in teaching, coaching and mentoring IRL, 
this is the first time I have mentored someone that I never have met 
IRL, over email. I'm supprised that it has worked so well. An important 
factor is that you have written so much on the list so that I have been 
able to see what is going on.

Thanks for you great work and dedication during this summer.
