Hi, GSoC students! 

I've heard from folks who are eager to follow your progress, but can't follow every discussion thread and research note, so I wanted to request that each week everyone send me just one sentence about their progress.

This can be a sentence you've already posted on a note or discussion list, or sent to me or your mentor. Just a quick "snapshot" of what you spent the week doing. I'll post these in a summary each Friday. 

Mentors - I'll send out a reminder each Thursday to ask students for this, but please help your students summarize if they need it, or chip in your own summaries (and/or questions) and I'm happy to include them.

So: please reply to this thread with your summaries by tomorrow!

Thanks, all! Great first week so far!

Hi Jeff,

Its a nice idea. 
Database structure was the crucial part of the application. I created a rails model for Usertag and wrote basic unit tests to get started. Next would be setup the controller and implementation of views.

Thanks !

Hi Jeff,

here is my sentence. I spent the week with research about AFSK modems and figured out what the SoftModem library actually does. Also I've read the code of modem.js to judge if it suits our needs (it probably does not, I'll post a research note or open a separate thread later).

Best regards,

Jeffrey Warren

Thanks, folks - anyone else? I know we're at varying time zones, but if you could send something short, that would be great.

That's a nice initiative! My work this week involved perusing the i18n docs, finding best practices for i18n, converting html tags to translation tags in footer layout, writing a set locale defination in the application controller, and a new initializer raising exception for missing translations. My next phase of task will involve writing basic tests ( I have written to the i18n maintainers regarding the best practices for i18n tests) and moving on to the header area.
