Oops. Obviously I've missed that mail. I'm sorry about that. I think
you were right. For MeeGo there's not a bit of code in public for
now. But I think that won't be an issue for GSoC since we are working
hard to make the debut as early as possible.

That's great! Thank you for your excellent work. I read the GSoC pages
on maemo.org and they are very good.
Since the deadline is tomorrow, is it possible for you to update the
Proposal to include some background on MeeGo (and how it's related to
Moblin and maemo)? Something like:
"At Feb 15, 2010, Intel and Nokia announced that the Maemo and Moblin
project would merge and supervised by Linux Foundation. So this GSoC
project also covers ideas and projects for the upcoming MeeGo
project..." (this is only my quick draft, for your reference)
And if you need a back-up organization administrators, I'm willing to
contribute my time.
And could you please add me as a mentor? I've several ideas around
MeeGo and would like to guide some students on it.
My name: Yan Li
maemo.org nickname: yanli
My areas of expertise: MeeGo distro/OS/GNOME/X.org/C/C++/AI
I'm drafting my ideas and will post them to the Project_ideas page
soon (and I'm wondering whether we need a dedicated page for
MeeGo-related projects so they won't confuse maemo users)...
