Application submissions are officially over

As Leslie[0] announced, applications are in and submission is over. We had 28 applications, just the same number we had last year. The overall quality of the applications have increased, and I believe we didn't have more applicants because of the growth of participants organizations that have spreaded students.

Today, I started our new evaluation process, which will require more interaction and dedication from proponents. Hopefully, the selection criteria will help hunt some bugs on Umit and increase the number of documentation relatated to the project.

In order to spread the word about GSoC and Umit, I made a video and secured some translations to it. You can view them all in this link: http://www.umitproject.org/ideas and they're going to be there for a while until we create a separate section to hold Umit videos in our website.

The amount of views we had for the different translations of the video were:
  • Portuguese/Brazil - 1.183 views
  • Portuguese/Portugal - 44 views
  • Spanish - 340 views
  • English - 1.232 views
  • Total - 2.699 views of our video
