Google conducts GSoC 2006 mentor summit next week In the area of "better collaboration between organizations", Alex Ionescu will present a short talk on ReactOS on the following topics: Targetting, developping and testing Win32 versions of projects on ReactOS. Solving OS-level and other platform-specific bugs. Finding out and dealing with undocumented behaviour. Testing Win32 ports without acquiring a Windows license and spending money on a test environment. The ReactOS Foundation is looking at creating an official long-term "division" responsible for communicating with developers and leaders from other projects.
