I know nothing, but i FEEL like the guy who will make the printer spooler abandon the task

If this really true, its a very big lost, this is the primordial feature to make Ros usable to some users(office users)

I'm am saying that they are abandoned by google, they are no longer SOC projects. Also the MSGINA clone blog has had it's last entry on Wed, 2006-05-31.

Fragment found on Reactos status report:

ReactOS participation in Google Summer Of Code
First of all, I would like to thank Google a lot for their effort of supporting FOSS community by providing such a beautiful thing as Summer Of Code.
ReactOS was approved for participation in SoC. We were given 4 project slots, however during midterm evaluation, we had to set unsatisfactory mark to 2 students, because they didn’t complete even the initial phase of the project, leaving currently two projects: Remote Desktop client application by Michele Cicciotti, which is the best moving project, it already has current progress in ReactOS SVN repository, and Clipboard Server API implementation, which is progressing slower than Remote Desktop client, however there is progress and student’s will to finish the project.
These are very valuable projects not only for ReactOS, but for users too. So we wish our best luck to those students to complete projects in time.

That status report should be linked on the main page, I think. It's very interesting and it's the first time I see it.

It will, as soon as it is ready.

That's a pity about those two projects, at least ReactOS still has two to hang on to...

In progress we (always) trust.

Why wouldn't it be ready as it is right now? I've read it and I found it very interesting.

just FYI: I have _NOT_ abandoned the print spooler task, it's just that progress is slower than I would have wanted and due to unforeseen personal circumstances (as well as exams) I didn't have the time to dedicate to it.

Also in my initial examinations of the print spooler I thought I'd be able to work out the function prototypes for the (undocumented) interface between the spooler rpc stub and the spooler router without dirty reversing.
