The goal of this project is to create a framework for representing Open Source contribution workflows, such as the existing Google Summer of Code TM (GSoC) program. Using this framework, it will be possible to host future Google Summer of Code programs (and other similar programs, such as the Google Highly Open Participation TM Contest, or GHOP) on Google App Engine.


  • New Invitation/Request Module This project aims to contribute to the invitation and request modules for Melange to improve flexibility and reliability of these subsystems of GSoC and GCI. It also provides a potential solution for the feature permitting students to upload code directly to Melange in the event that the invitation and request modules are completed with time to spare by the end of the program.
  • Testing, Code Guru, Code Quality Assurance Melange have extensive set of unit tests but currently it does not have the same coverage for functional tests. Hence there is a need for extensive coverage of functional tests to make sure that all views work as expected. In order to fill this void. I propose a Data Driven Framework For Functional Testing of Melange. A test suite consisting of all the possible test cases covering all the possible scenarios of using melange application.
