it's a little late, but it seems that there is one day left to propose
projects for the Google summer of code. I think Talha started an
initiative last year, maybe we should try again this year?
After Jack said that he wanted to have more (G)ARCH variants this year
for a relatively big release it occurred to me that maybe that's what
gretl could propose as a project.
I tend to think that the marketing would be relatively easy given that
ARCH won a Nobel prize and that those tools are not only of interest to
scientists or crazy macroeconomists, but to an entire industry (although
I would like to see the financial industry shrink and deflate, but
that's another story).
As I said, it appears to be quite late. Talha, do you think it's crazy
to try to meet the deadline? Personally I would be relatively free
tomorrow and could do some writing, but I don't have any idea about the
amount of work involved at this stage.
