Day1 (March 12)

Christian Jaeger (pflanze) and James Long (jlongster) have met on the #scheme IRC channel on, and got some advice (and a provisional gambit wrapper for Riaxpander), and have discussed why hygienic macro systems rename symbols and that when using namespaces in the symbols, this might be enough as "rename" means, thus providing nice integration with preexisting namespace-using Gambit code.

After that they continued discussion privately and exchanged thoughts on precompiling code and what this has to do with first-class modules ("first-class modules" being a wrapper around namespaces+contents, basically), and more. Decision to start writing wiki pages, accept one student, and announce this to the Gambit mailing list.

Days 2-7 (March 13-18)

CJ mainly studied GSoC documentation and google group discussions, added license declaration to the project page, discovered #gambit IRC channel (together with JL), carrying out various discussions (with JL, Marc, Guillaume Cartier), checked pkg-config hint by G.Cartier, started reading paper by M.Flatt, created Module_System/Virtual_Library page, (talk with D. Peschel about Namespaces wiki page), observed #gsoc channel during the time when GSoC program manager LH explained how selection has happened. Two Mails to the Gambit-ml. "Nothing much", but all in all some learning experiences.
