Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMMONSSITE-103) GSOC: Apache Commons bug bounty
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2018 11:03:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMMONSSITE-103?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16383466#comment-16383466

Stian Soiland-Reyes commented on COMMONSSITE-103:
-------------------------------------------------

Hi, [~kamila.molina97] - that sounds like a great idea since Commons RDF it has multiple impementations
of the same API, and they are currently separated as Maven modules. Another potential candidate
for that could be Commons-VFS although that is a single Maven module currently.

https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-rdf/userguide.html#Creating_Commons_RDF_instances
shows how it now uses ServiceLoader SPI to find implementations, which could be good to revise/test
for Java 9 modules.

I suggest you make a new brief JIRA issue under the "Commons RDF" Jira project (I'm afraid
there's one project per Commons component) and point to that from here -- perhaps [~ajs6f]
could be interested in being the GSOC mentor..? ;-)

> [Apache Commons|https://commons.apache.org/] is a project that manage a series of independent
Java libraries called [components|https://commons.apache.org/components.html]. 
> Some of the perhaps most well known components include [commons-io|https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-io/],
[commons-lang|https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-lang/], [commons-collections|https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-collections/]
and [commons-cli|https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-cli/]
> But did you know that Commons is also managing some more specialized components like
[commons-crypto|https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-crypto/], [commons-numbers|https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-numbers/],
[commons-rng|https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-rng/] and [commons-rdf|https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-rdf/]
?
> The potential GSOC student will propose an idea to work with one or more chosen Apache
Commons components to churn through any outstanding Jira issues, update for Java 8/9, improve
web site, documentation or testing.
> As the appropriate GSOC mentor will depend slightly on which Commons component the student
is interested in, prospective students are encouraged to engage early by subscribing and posting
to [dev@commons|https://lists.apache.org/list.html?dev@commons.apache.org] using the subject
tag [GSOC] and the  commons  component(s) they are intested in, e.g.
> {quote}
> To: dev@commons.apache.org
> Subject: [GSOC] [Crypto] Potential GSOC idea
> Hi, I am Alice, student at Foo university, and I am interested in GSOC for Apache Commons,
in particular Commons Crypto as I have been quite involved in cryptography protocols over
the years together with my friend Bob.
> What could be a good chunk of work to get started with? Perhaps adding support for rot13?
