Two phpMyAdmin projects in GSoC 2008

Well I did not expect that much when MySQL offered us to piggyback on their participation in GSoC 2008, but at the end we have two projects. One is about blobstreaming which I absolutely don't know and is probably some amazing new technology :-). Marc will act as a sponsor on this together with some guys from http://www.blobstreaming.org.

The second project is setup rewrite where I will act as a mentor and Piotr Przybylski will implement it. Hopefully we will bring this to successful end and soon phpMyAdmin will bring you easier way to set up and configure it's options.

Similarity in project names

While looking at poll about Czech open source for first time, I was surprised that two of my projects got in - phpMyAdmin and Wammu. After looking again at that page I noticed there is a typo in phpMyAdmins name, it was written as phpMinAdmin. Then I looked even more carefully and even URL it is pointing to is something different. In this time I realized that it is something completely different with just very similar name. phpMinAdmin is some minimalistic clone of phpMyAdmin, but why they could not choose a bit more different name?

PS: Anyway you can still vote for Wammu in Czech open source :-).

phpMyAdmin is in Summer of Code

Well not directly, but MySQL is and they will also accept our projects. So if you are student interested in getting some money for improving free software, you're welcome to contact us. We have written down our ideas to wiki, but feel free to come with your own thought. But don't forget that deadline is this Monday!

While talking about this improving phpMyAdmin, phpMyAdmin team would also like to take part in Hackontest, so vote and suggest there features for us! If you have no idea for phpMyAdmin, Debian is also taking part there ;-).
