Here's the GSoC timeline for you to check against your personal one:

I definitely want to do it seriously, but I realize that it starts way
sooner than I thought.
Basically I will be more settled from end of May. Before that, my
schedule and my internet time will be limited, just like now. It still
means that I will read all my emails and will answer them. But it may
mean that my response time can be a few days (like it is currently).
From end of May though, I can be a full time geek again with its own
Internet connection, through all summer.

How would such a thing work with gsoc? Is it acceptable?

It's not exactly desirable, but given enough backup mentors it's
acceptable. The trick is to keep a student involved while you are a
bit late with replies :) I think we can have a simple protocol to
address this:

- get students to hang out on IRC where multiple developers are available;
- for email communication, keep admin/backup admin in CC so that
absence of replies could be determined and dealt with in a timely

Just in case, we will be accepting project ideas for both GIMP and GEGL.

On my side, I would concentrate on GIMP side.
There are many things that can be improved in GIMP, with or without a
GEGL piece too, and I definitely can propose and mentor various

Awesome :)
