Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Amber proposal
Date Thu, 29 Apr 2010 17:11:38 GMT
Hi Daniel,
we're planning to develop a library usable by other projects, for v1 and 1a
of OAuth, and then start from that first deliverable to work on an
implementation of v2. From what I understand the scope of the GSoC project
is already quite well delineated, however maybe the student could contibute
to the discussions on how Amber should be made to be interoparable with CXF,
eventually if it fits contribute code to Amber and work in parallel on CXF
for integrating Amber where needed.

I don't know if GSoC contemplates these "inter-project works", but since it
makes absolute sense not to waste Google money and student/mentor time in
creating a parallel implementation, IMO it is worth trying to merge the
effort. If it is possible given the GSoC bylaws, current state of the
proposal etc.. then it would be great.
