Please do not email me privately, use the public mailing list. That
will allow other maintainers to provide you help if I am unable to do
so. It also means that you start interacting with the rest of the
community (useful) instead of only me (only barely useful).
I do not have any sort of test for anyone. You would be evaluated on
your GSoC proposal and on any previous work that you have contributed
to Octave. I won't provide you with things to do either, it is
important that are you able to find them on your own. I will gladly,
via the mailing list or IRC, offer help on more specific questions on
how to solve a specific problem that you find.
I guess you already read the Summer of Code Project Ideas page  but
please read the section "Steps Towards a Successful Application".
