I'm Hirday Gupta and I'm currently a Freshman studying Computer Science at UCLA. I know I'm super late to the process, but I would really love to be able to work with Swift.org for GSoC 2018. After going through the projects, I think I would like to work on improving command line status reporting for the SwiftPM. I am extremely fluent in Swift, C++ and have gained familiarity with Shell/Bash Scripting through a class in the previous academic quarter.
I was looking for some guidance on getting started with the process. Specifically, I was looking for guidance with the following:
I was wondering if it would be okay if I focus on writing the proposal for now, and then, while applications are under review, I could get started fixing some of the starter bugs?
Also, with respect to the "Improving Command Line Status Reporting" Project, I was wondering what would be expected in a proposal (or just general Swift.org guidelines for GSOC Proposals).
Thanks! Look forward to the next steps.
