Definitely still excited since, by the time it was over, I had gotten pretty competent at Debian packaging, and now it's just more of the same until we get a Python 3 & Qt 5 release. Mainly, I want the good record of GSoC projects to continue. Last year we had several projects going but this year it was only me. That means we need to get the word out more, and earlier.
You can read Chinese, then have you got a Chinese name for yourself?
Hah, I do. 武克特. I picked 武 because I like 武術 and my actual surname Kremitzki is fairly hopeless for native Chinese speakers.
你好,老武

We would like to call colleagues like this. :-). If the relationship is more close, someone would call you "克特哥"(ke te ge), which sound a little funny, I think, because the tongue had to jump in month.

I got a wiki editor account yesterday, and I modified the Main Page in simplified Chinese. I think it looks warmer.

By the way, Google Summer of Code, I put it as "谷歌编程之夏" there,or “谷歌代码之夏” is better?

Haven't you discussed it before?
Excuse me, I have just searched the forum for this topic just now. I am too eager to post my first word. I'm sorry for that.
I do not mean this had been discussed before...

It is good to have a Chinese forum, there should be a moderator who can offer time to facilitate discussion.

Tradition and Simplified Chinese supported!

程式設計, 編程 better than 代碼 ? IMHO

夏令營? Though no camp i think :)

Yes!That's it! You are right, we know what is a "夏令营", while "某某之夏" is a bit Enginese.
I will go to modify it. Thank you, Lee.

Thank you, kkremitzki. You keep your promise!
Now I have a place to discuss some confusing terms while translating FreeCAD's wiki pages and Sliptonic's new book.
Hope there are someone who know both FreeCAD and Chinsese well. I think we had better keep the engineering term exactly what they are, and introduce the native term from local culture to make the accessing process to FreeCAD smoother.
Thanks again for your effort and kindness. :)

Thanks and Johnquicker build up many things there already!

He even translate the help to Simplified Chinese and 'translate' again to Traditional Chinese. For some who can't readily read 'Simplified Chinese', it is terrific!

And even better if you could consider adding to the sub-forum Title for ease of understanding :)

Wouldn't it be sensible to continue this discussion in the now existant chinese forum? For me it is as if you talk chinese :) .
