Congratulations for the successful GSOC application.
Some of you might remember me from last year. I participated in GSOC
2010 and implemented the makefilelib  excellently mentored by Thomas
Modes. Btw, I'm very happy to see my code in the current releases :)
This semester I'm participating in rather intensive computer vision and
computer graphics courses.
When I followed the blueprint collection on the mailing list and
launchpad I got interested in the vertical-line-horizon-detector
blueprint . It could give me the chance to use the courses content
beyond examples and exercises.
The blueprint says there exists already some work on that. Is it
somewhere in the repo?
Here is a little general introduction, mostly copied from last year's.
My name is Florian Achleitner I'm
from Austria and studying Telematics (a blend of computer science and
electric engineering) at the Graz University of Technology.
Currently I'm in the third year of my studies, before starting my
studies I worked for four years as a developer in industry.
My programming experience grew since I started writing programs on TI
calculators in school probably 15 years ago.
From my work and university experience I'm familiar with C, C++,
Python, Makefiles, Java, Shell Scripts.. (sorted by experience).
I'm open-source enthusiast, exclusivly using Linux since years and
administrating a linux web-file-mail-server.
Since many years I'm interested in digital photography. My camera is a
Konica Minolta Dimage Z5, which is no longer new or good unfortunately,
but provides advanced capture modes. I don't have any special panorama
