Issues with updating tickets (patch)

Hello

      I am having issues adding a post to my tickets and I can not edit an existing post message but I can remove and change the attachments. I have change the bottom patches to the updated version but I can not change or update the messages to explain my changes. I have tried contacting the sourgeforge help center and also #sourceforge. I was asked to try lots of solution but none solved the issues, but I  was told they would look into the problem later since it was not working hours. I just wanted to notify the GSoC mentors of the issue. The links below are to the patches I tried updating
https://sourceforge.net/p/brlcad/patches/301/
https://sourceforge.net/p/brlcad/patches/320/
        Fortunately I wrote the patches earlier and so the links are also on my proposal.

Thanks
Konrad

Deadline for patch

Hi,

Is there a bit of leniency on the deadline for the patch? Stuck at my parents for the weekend without my usual setup. It's going, but slowly, let's just say. Or exactly when is it due, perhaps is a better question. 

Thanks,

Tawhid

GSOC: OGV Project

I have submitted my proposal and am working on submitting a PR for the project, and will submit in the coming week, as soon as possible. Almost done working on omniAuth for OGV webapp.

I had a request though.
I wanted few sample .g files for testing purposes. Please give a link for download or a source asap.
Thanks

BRL-CAD "Material Database" project

I am Sameer Pujani 3rd year student of Guru Nanak Dev Engineering
College, India I want to participate in BRL-CAD "Material Database"
project in GSoC. I have experience in web technology like HTML, CSS,
JS, Wordpress etc. I am dedicated person for my work, I have done some
projects in my college period and I am interested in open source
communities because I am working on open source project for my
learning. I want to contribute my knowledge in open source under
BRL-CAD.
I have read the previous logs of BRL-CAD IRC chat.

GSoC 2015 proposal

Hi Everyone,
                  I'm Tanuj Kr Aasawat and a final year undergrad in Dept. of Information technology, Jadavpur University, India. I implemented Label propagation algorithm(parallel cpu version) when I was at University of British Columbia, Canada as Mitacs Globalink Scholar. Practical application of label propagation algorithm is "People You May Know Service" of different social networking sites. Another algorithm on which I co-worked there at UBC, was computing clustering coefficient parallelly using GPUs(with CUDA using C). Our work outperformed any other by 7x speedup and it was accepted for poster presentation in prestigious Super Computing Conference, SC'14, New Orleans, LA. Clustering coefficient represents how tightly vertices are bounded in a graph.
As I am going for further studies in the field of high performance computing, in particular harnessing the computation power of GPUs, I am willing to work on "OpenCL GPGPU Ray Tracing" project.
My final exams will be over by 18th of May, 2015 and I would be going for my Masters in September, so I would be available full time. 

My programming skills in C/C++: 
 C, C++ >> (since 1st year) >> Also used them during my research internship at IIT-KGP. 
Apart from that, recently, my team was the finalist in "Overnite ACM ICPC Multi Provincial Programming Contest" which was held at IIT-KGP.

Anticipating positive reply from your side.

About the bot_dump command

Hi Sean!
You gave me a suggestion to add an option to bot_dump command to output surface normals. Now, the fact is, it already has one (a flag -n) to output the normals when exporting to OBJ. I also found a message regarding it pointing to brlcad/trunk/NEWS -- here it is :

Now, the thing is, I tried running the command from MGED cmd to see if there is an option to output normals before starting to venture out to have a look at the code. And boom! I got this message : " Error: invalid command name "bot_dump" "
I tried cleaning the compilation and ran make again. No luck yet.
I had a look at the code for bot_dump and ran it through Linux terminal then and the command was working nicely.
One down, one more to go.
Hence, my task was now focused on finding how to add the command to MGED. 

After a lot of journey, searching and running through call hierarchies in the code (thanks to Eclipse for that), I found "setup.c" in mged directory in src. Phew! I found the cmdtab there and added the command. And it works now. :)

You can find more details about it here : brlcaddev.wordpress.com

I have uploaded the patch. Hoping to submit as many as I can before Monday. :D

With Regards,
Kalpit Thakkar

GSOC Web development project: Online Geometry Viewer Backend

<at> Isaac Kamga
Thanks a lot,

I was looking into these links already, thanks for assuring me that I am on the right path. 
Yes it is late, but I am trying to dive into the project as deep as possible, mainly focusing on the ideology and my vision about the project. Which is based on sites like behance.net (sharing and showcasing graphic design). I want to make the project on these lines. Since I am in to graphic design as well, I had a few creatives about the project as well.

The Viewer should not merely remain just a viewer but a social platform for people to showcase their designs and may be act as a social link among people. 
Something like: I made this Iron Man design and I upload it here. Now Stark Industries find my designs on this platform, they contact me and recruit me :D.

GSoC application deadline approaching and Patches


GSoC Applicants,

As the deadline nears, I know many of you are still working furiously on your proposals or anxiously
awaiting feedback.  Some will get feedback, some will not — feedback at this point will have
little-to-no impact on your chances of getting selected.  Just make your proposal the best you can make it.

What will matter is a code patch.  No matter which org you are working with, you will greatly increase your
chances of getting selected if you demonstrate competency towards making a useful change to your orgs
existing code.   Correspondingly, anyone that does not submit a code patch will be at a disadvantage.

Note that this means modifying existing code that you did not write.  Showing your own projects where you
wrote a million lines of code is not really useful.  The point of a patch is to demonstrate you’ve gone
through the very basic effort of downloading sources, researched enough on your own to find something you
could improve, having enough ability to modify/extend existing code in some useful and meaningful way,
and then communicating that change properly back (via patch file submission and/or pull request).  It
shows you know how to read code too, which is generally a much more difficult skill to become
proficient/efficient/productive in.

Applicants have until Monday to submit patches.  If you do provide one, please include a URL to the patch /
pull request in a Melange comment with your proposal (which you can do before or after the deadline).  See
http://brlcad.org/wiki/Patches if you’ve never made a patch before, or see any of the thousands of
tutorials around the web.  If you need some ideas, see our TODO and/or BUGS files in our source repository.

Cheers!
Sean
