Remember everyone, while conversations are important here, Google doesn't know your proposal exists until you've also submitted on the GSOC site.

EDIT: Corrected link

Hi natethomas,

I tried to submit my proposal, but it fails with an error message: "This page is not accessible to users with student profiles."
Did I somethign wrong?

It's possible that exact link won't work. I don't have a student profile, so it's somewhat difficult to see what you guys see. If you just start at google-melange, you should be able to navigate to the project submission page.

Yes, thank you for the reminder. I just misplaced my proof of enrollment for now, but it should be sorted out soon. In the worst scenario, I could just use my student card to get past the verification, but I would like to use something a bit more formal if possible.

I need to improve my English skills, feel free to correct me ;-)

Just bumping this as we are now half way through the proposal stage and have lots of forum threads.

But still only 6 projects submitted to google code officially. Get them in as soon as you can at this link.

You're right. I just submitted mine. I have had a lot of work to do for school these two last weeks, for my defense.
I am deducing from the comments that the two Kodi GSoC administrators are zag and natethomas, am I right ? Smile

I am the only real administrator. All the others are mere pretenders to the admin throne!

I see that four accepted Kodi projects are now listed on Google's website for GSoC 2015, and the accepted projects are for On-the-Fly Transcoding, Better Profile Support, Creating cross-platform room correction, and a NVIDIA GameStream client

https://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/proj...0916475904
https://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/proj...1244955648
https://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/proj...0225344512
https://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/proj...0916475904

Other projects that are indirectly related to Kodi, like FFmpeg, are also listed at https://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/proj...e/gsoc2015
