Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMMONSSITE-103) GSOC: Apache Commons bug bounty
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2018 13:43:00 GMT


A. Soroka commented on COMMONSSITE-103:

I'm not against it-- I just wanted to be sure we don't try to use JPMS for more than it's
good for. As I understand the idea, I don't think multi-version JARs are a problem here; we're
talking about modules in separate JARs. But that's a good reason for [~kamila.molina97] to
write a ticket specifically for this idea-- let's figure out the best way to do this together!

> [Apache Commons|] is a project that manage a series of independent
Java libraries called [components|]. 
> Some of the perhaps most well known components include [commons-io|],
[commons-lang|], [commons-collections|]
and [commons-cli|]
> But did you know that Commons is also managing some more specialized components like
[commons-crypto|], [commons-numbers|],
[commons-rng|] and [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|] using the subject
tag [GSOC] and the  commons  component(s) they are intested in, e.g.

> 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?
