I am a final year undergraduate student at Bengal Engineering and
Science University, Shibpur, India.
I am interested in this year's GSOC project on Learning to rank in Xapian.
I just wanted to ask whether that project is still being considered in this
year's GSOC and is it a good time to start.
I have started going through the resources given alongside the project
description in the Ideas page. I wanted to ask about the next steps to
proceed, I mean whether there are any issues with the existing Letor API,
as it would have helped me get familiar to the codebase faster.
I have a quite decent coding experience with C++ being an ACM-ICPC regional
finalist in 2013. I also have some idea about feature selection algorithms
as well as information retrieval and I am very interested in contributing
to this project in this year's GSoC.
Hoping for a reply soon.
