It is strange I didn't get your mail describing your test issue and 
asking this question. I do see it in the archives, however, so I assume 
it is some problem on my end, but since there does seem to be a problem, 
if it ever seems like I am ignoring you, give me a ping as I may not 
have seen your mail.

You asked:

In your proposal please make sure you call out.
    - Work you have done on Derby already, including reading 
documentation and setting up your build and test environment.
    - Work you plan to do on Derby. Site specific issues you would like 
to work on. If you like I can help you identify ones that might be 
    - Your availability during the GSoC period. Ideally specify how many 
hours per week you can work and any dates you will be out on vacation etc.

It would be ideal if you could complete or at least get started on an 
issue before April 3 when ranking begins so we can see some example of 
your work and interaction with the community on technical issues.

I have offered to review other students' proposals and would be happy to 
review yours before you submit if you would like input.
