Hello, I am a computer science undergraduate student and New to this organization. I would like to work on the project "Extend CLTK core to new language" as a GSOC project under CLTK. Is there a particular Mentor for this project?

Oops, accidentally misclicked and deleted the message. I’ll attempt to rewrite it:
@kylepjohnson i feel like its better practice to squash all PR commits into one commit and rebase onto master before merging the PR into master. That way, each commit corresponds to one issue fix / enhancement and there aren’t commits like Merge branch 'master' into prosody-fix in the history that don’t really mean much.

@deepanshu1995 please write to me at about what language you want add to the CLTK and which corpora/data sets you want to start with. Thanks!
@nelson-liu I have not done much with rebasing before. Would you please share here an example workflow for us? I'll confess that I like the simplicity of our current practice, though you're right that some of these commits aren't always useful.
@nelson-liu just saw your PR. I'll accept, though will probably move the info into the wiki. I'll get back to you about the rebase flow. thx!

ah true, thanks. The wiki would be a better place to put it.
so the benefit of rebasing is twofold — you don’t have commits like “merge x into master” everywhere in the history, and you can use it to squash the commits in a PR into one commit, so in the history one commit refers to one issue solved / enhancement (as PRs typical solve an issue or introduce an enhancement)
so to rebase, you would git checkout my_feature_branch
and git rebase master
solve all the merge conflicts, and then it will fast forward your changes on top of the current master, so you don’t have commits like merge x into master
now to squash, you would run git rebase -i HEAD~x
where x is a number signifying the last x commits you want to squash
so if I made 3 commits in a PR, i’d run git rebase -i HEAD~3 to squash the last 3 commits in my branch together. After running that, git opens a text editor with the commit hashes / commit messages of the last x commits. There, you simply put an s or squash before each of the things you want to fold into one commit (usually the first one)
then you write a new commit message, and force push (git push -f). The result is that all of your 3 commits in that PR are now one commit, which is a lot cleaner in terms of history and workflow.

Hi, I am a GSoC 2016 aspirant. While going through the ideas page of Classical Language Toolkit I came across the idea 'Develop Machine Translation Interface to Moses' and found it interesting and promising. I am first year masters student and my areas includes machine learning, text processing and NLP. I would like to contribute to this project as as part of GSoC. Who is the mentor for this project?

Dear all applicants, our team has been (happily) overwhelmed by the many emails we've received. @lukehollis and I are responding to each on individually. It may take a few more days till we can get back to you, so please don't take the silence as disinterest.
@AbhishekKumarSingh That's a great project. Please write an email to me explaining what parallel corpora you'd make or use in your project. Also any MT experience you have. We can have a conversation from there.

Greetings, I am a GSoc 2016 aspirant. I am a third year undergraduate student from Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology, New Delhi, India. I would love to work on a project in CLTK (in my opinion preserving languages works on more than just linguistic, cultural or philosophical levels)

I am comfortable in working with Python, Java and C++. I've had extensive training in Sanskrit and Hindi and a smattering of Kannada.
Would love to know how to go about it further on
Thank you
