I'm interested in joining Google Summer of Code this year. The distributed tracing project proposal resonated the most with me as I implemented multiple Server-Side Swift projects over the last couple of semesters. Being able to see the Swift projects traced alongside e.g. Golang projects would've been very helpful.
@ktoso In the proposal you mentioned that the implementation should adhere to the OpenTracing standard. If I understand it correctly OpenTracing got now merged with OpenCensus and is being redefined as OpenTelemetry so I'm not sure whether an OpenTracing client would still be needed. OpenTelemetry already started a Swift client yesterday so I'm curious to hear your thoughts on whether it'd still be possible to be involved in realizing distributed tracing for Swift on the server.
