Subject Re: to involve in your development group
Date Sat, 13 Jul 2013 16:24:21 GMT
Hi Sandeep,

That is great news, and good job. OK, for some ideas about developing
your proposal, you may want to simply start with a Google Docs, and then
share it with Pei. I'd be happy to help co-mentor if Pei and you think
it's useful too.

Your proposal should likely cover:

1. Background - what's the state of CTAKES-189 and what's it trying to
accomplish
  (include some figures, etc. along with your text)

2. Approach - what are you going to do to solve CTAKES-189. Be specific,
and 
  try to break it down into smaller, easily reversible steps

3. Schedule - how long and what is the schedule for achieving this?

4. Risks/etc. - any known risks like are you taking a vacation anytime
soon :)
  or are there other time constraints?

5. References, etc.

HTH and I'd be happy if you want to share the GDocs with me as you develop
it.

Cheers!

Chris
