Re: [GSoC 2014] Proposal: OpenCL Code Generator

Hi Ilmir!

So I'd like to participate GSoC 2014 with project called "OpenCL Code Generator" as an independent student. I will do the project during my free time, my employer will not pay for this.

How much time would you be able to allocate for working on the GSoC
project?  Per
Âyou should expect your project to be your primary focus this summerÂ.

Specifically an ÂOpenMP 4.0 target pluginÂ, or generally a libgomp
plugin, so this would benefit both OpenACC and OpenMP, I assume?

Generally, such a project does appear suitable as a GSoC project, and you
should certainly file it on the GSoC site before the deadline on Friday,
so that it can be considered there.
