[Monodevelop-devel] GSoC 2014. MonoDevelop

Hello. My name is Sergey. I am a student at Moscow Technological Institute
(formerly known as World Technological University UNESCO).
I am looking forward for GSoC 2014.

I know that proposal should be made later at offical Google Summer of Code
site, but I was told that it would be better to contact with
mentoring organisation earlier.

I was around Mono since I moved my development activities from Windows to
Linux. And I am happy that I haven't had to trade one of my favorite
programming languages for something else.

I studied Mono's project list for GSoC, but I want to propose something
else. My target is MonoDevelop (Xamarin Studio), specifically an Xunit.net
test runner. I was planning an addin for MonoDevelop since the past autumn,
and I have studied for that purpose Mono.Addins, Xunit sources, NUnit addin
and, of course, basics of MonoDevelop's internals.

At this moment my only opensource activity is this little project (
https://github.com/x2bool/NCaptcha/wiki). The project was written
~2 years ago, and it's not the best code humanity has ever written.
However, the code does it's job.

My hope is to make the Xunit addin that will copy (at least most of the
parts) the functionality of the existing NUnit addin. I think it would be
wise to target the Xunit 2.0 (now in beta) release. The Xunit.net itself
doesn't seem to be the hardest part, but it will require some amount of
code. I see the hardest challenge in GUI integration because I am not
familiar with Gtk-Sharp. But if it's more or less like Java Swing or
Android's GUI framework this shouldn't be impossible.

As I understand my chances will increase if I will do some work to show my
skills. What should I do? Can I pick up a random bug from bugzilla, work on
it and make a pull request?
