Subject Re: [GSoC-idea] Confluence Connector
Date Thu, 12 Mar 2015 11:26:29 GMT
Hi Dimuthu and Rafa,

I just laid out a 4-point proposal checklist in my response to Antonio --
it is important that all proposals at least touch on all four points.  I'd
also echo Rafa's point and maybe consider applying for more than one
project, just in case. ;-)
