     4 1. '''Description.'''[[BR]]
    55 The I2P project aims to extend users privacy by providing an anonymous communication network. It was founded in 2003 and attracted several thousand users so far. The development work is done by an international group (with both anonymous and known participants). We coordinate over IRC or discussion in a forum.[[BR]]
    66 I2P uses onion routing (an encryption layer is added for each router messages need to pass) for its anonymous network and is somewhat similar to Tor. The main difference from many other projects is that we try to build a VPN-like network. All traffic and all applications can stay within our network. This allows more resistance against attackers.[[BR]]
     
    1313   a. Development of applications on top of I2P in any programming language, due to a simple socket interface for programs.
    1414   a. An easy and user-friendly install, so anyone can be anonymous without too much trouble.

    2020 Multiple developers work on the I2P project, but we would like to get some extra people involved. As I2P is an anonymity and security project, it's important for us to get a lot of peer review ('many eyeballs'-principle). Extra developers would also allow an increased focus on less 'evolved' parts of the project.
    2121 [[BR]]Another important reason for us to apply is the publicity and community size. By drawing additional attention to the I2P project, we believe it's possible to increase the size of the community. This would in turn improve the anonymity of the users.

    38  1. Does your organization have an application template you would like to see students use? If so, please provide it now. Please note that it is a very good idea to ask students to provide you with their contact information as part of your template. Their contact details will not be shared with you automatically via the GSoC 2010 site.[[BR]]

    3939 Yes. See [wiki:gsoc/ideas here](top of the page).

     40 1. '''What criteria did you use to select the individuals who will act as mentors for your organization? Please be as specific as possible:'''[[BR]]
    4141  - Experience with I2P code in general, and with the suggested project proposals in particular.
    4242  - Knowledge of the I2P community.
    4343  - People skills: getting along with others and resolving conflicts. This includes helping new users (which, according to us, indicates a willingness to help GSoC students as well)
    44  1. What is your plan for dealing with disappearing students?[[BR]]
     44 1. '''What is your plan for dealing with disappearing students?'''[[BR]]
    4545 First of all, we'll try to avoid having students disappear, by keeping regular contact and trying to help them solve any problems they encounter. In the event a student should disappear, we will make sure we have their contact information already, so we can easily contact them and persuade them to carry on with the project (possibly with extra guidance). We will also try to notice early on when a student is no longer motivated, by checking on the progress they're making.
    46  1. What is your plan for dealing with disappearing mentors?[[BR]]
     46 1. '''What is your plan for dealing with disappearing mentors?'''[[BR]]
    4747 The mentors are all long-time I2P community members, and, as such, not very likely to leave the project. If they do, we will try to contact them. If this is not possible, another mentor will take over their work (or we can perhaps divide the work between two other mentors).
    48  1. What steps will you take to encourage students to interact with your project's community before, during and after the program?[[BR]]
     48 1. '''What steps will you take to encourage students to interact with your project's community before, during and after the program?'''[[BR]]
    4949 We advise all students to get to know us by communicating on IRC and the forum. Setting up I2P and an I2P website (possibly with help on IRC) will also hand students some initial I2P knowledge.
    50  1. What will you do to ensure that your accepted students stick with the project after GSoC concludes?[[BR]]
     50 1. '''What will you do to ensure that your accepted students stick with the project after GSoC concludes?'''[[BR]]
    5151 I2P is a project that has a lot of different topics to work on. This should ensure that any student can either build on what they've accomplished over the summer, or can shift their attention to an entirely new project inside (or on top of) I2P.
    5252 We will try to keep interaction with the students at a high level, which should also keep motivation and 'community feeling' up.
    53  1. Is there anything else you would like to tell the Google Summer of Code program administration team?[[BR]]

    5454 With the technical difficulties fixed(mentioned earlier), we are looking forward to the gsoc, even more after we have a rapid growth in network size and development team size behind us in the past year.
