I'm unsure if this applicant contacted the KDE Edu team in advance, but I heard nothing from them until seeing this proposal this morning. 

The short description of the proposal:

"As a student, I use graphs in almost everything related to my master’s research. Graph Theory is a great mathematical tool for programmers and mathematicians, as it facilitates some computational problems resolution and modelling. However, is not always easy to understand the underlying theory and algorithms.

"Rocs (https://kde.org/applications/education/rocs) is a Graph Theory IDE created in January of 2010, with new updates still being committed almost every month, currently in the KDE repositories, designed for lecturers, students and researchers. It is composed of a visual data structure and a powerful scripting engine in _javascript_. Though useful for creating simple graphs, it is still lacking the tools to simplify the creation of bigger graphs, and also of basic graph theory algorithms for beginners. Another improvement it should have is a step by step execution system, in order to fully comprehend the algorithms and facilitate debugging."

If you are interested in mentoring but have not yet been invited to the app, please write KDE-Soc-Management@xxxxxxx and tell us what google-connected email address you want us in use. Also, subscribe to KDE-Soc-Mentor mail list: https://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde-soc-mentor

If you're already a mentor, you can mark "I want to mentor" on the proposal page. I believe that we can still comment on the draft and the student can read it, although we are not allowed to consider the draft in our consideration of which students to accept.

All the best,
