+Google Summer of Code and similar project guidlines
+Summer of code is a project by google in which students are paid to implement
+some nice new features for various participating open source projects ...
+This text is a collection of things to take care off for the next soc as
+its a little late for this years soc (2006)
+The Goal:
+Our goal in respect to soc is and must be of course exactly one thing and
+that is to improve FFmpeg, to reach this goal, code must
+* conform to the svn policy and patch submission guidlines
+* must improve ffmpeg somehow (faster, smaller, "better",
+  more codecs supported, fewer bugs, cleaner, ...)
+for mentors and other developers to help students to reach that goal it is
+essential that changes to their codebase are publically vissible, clean and
+easy reviewable that again leads us to:
+* use of a revision control system like svn
+* seperation of cosmetic from non cosmetic changes (this is almost entirly
+  ignored by mentors and students in soc 2006 which might lead to a suprise
+  when the code will be reviewed at the end before a possible inclusion in
+  ffmpeg, individual changes where generally not reviewable due to cosmetics)
+* frequent commits, so that comments can be provided early
