I don't consider work on garch models a matter of life and death. It's
just something that I consider indispensable to call gretl "100% feature
complete" and that I'd like see done in 2010.
GSoC would be nice for this in theory, but in practice I consider it
unlikely that someone totally unfamiliar with gretl's codebase could
implement a whole array of estimation methods with a few months'
A worthwhile intermediate project for models of conditional
heteroskedasticity (much more feasible in a limited timeframe) may be a
good shakeup of Stefano Balietti's gig code, which is all in gretl
scripting language and therefore much more accessible than raw C. If
someone decided to pick that up, I'd be very very happy to act as
That sounds good. It would be a shame to let Stefano's work on
that rot away.
