Andreas Weigel commented on COMDEV-85:

Hi Branko Čibej,

I'm Andreas Weigel, a final year undergraduate in computer science from Karlsruhe Institute
of Technology, Germany. 
After using tools and frameworks of apache software foundation i would like to give something
back to the open source community and would like to participate in this years GSoC in an apache
I'm interested in the idea adding social media integration into a software development collaboration
tool. Using redmine and chiliproject i'm experienced in using such tools.

I also have developing experience by first working two years in the research center for information
technology in Karlsruhe, Germany and since two years as a student in a software developing

Developing experience include Java, JSP, JS, jQuery, CSS, Twitter Bootstrap, HTML, mySQL,
Spring, Spring MVC, Tiles, Spring Data, OpenCms, Maven, GIT/SVN, Jenkins, Sonar, Tomcat, Jetty,

Can you please provide more information about this project and tell me what the next steps
are to move on?

> Apache Bloodhound is a software development collaboration tool, including issue tracking,
wiki and repository browsing (see: Bloodhound extends Trac
( with multiple product support, advanced search functionality,
ticket relations, a simpler installer and sleeker user interface. Apache Bloodhound recently
graduated from the Apache Incubator as a stand-alone Apache project. 
> Problem: 
> Many big open source projects have issue trackers built on Trac, the same technology
Apache Bloodhound is built on. We're hoping to make it easier for people to refer to objects
like tickets, milestones, versions or whole products in a meaningful way.
> Proposed solution: 
> One approach to this is to provide ​Twitter card integration (
for a richer experience. In addition ​Facebook Meta Tags (
could be helpful. Google Plus ​relies on metatags, which we may also want to
conform to (
> Skills needed: 
> Bloodhound and Trac are written in Python, so a moderate dose of Python programing skills
are required.
