My proposal, Improved Linear Models (http://goo.gl/NXicvU) has been selected for GSoC 2014 mentored by Alex and Jaidev. (A coincidence that my last GSoC proposal also started with Improved). Sklearn got 4 slots this time and all the best to my fellow students (Issam, Hamzeh and Maheshakya).
Thanks to Alex, Gael, Vlad and other mentors for helping me put together a decent proposal from almost nowhere. As part of the community bonding period, I am working on these two Pull Requests, hopiing I can get them merged by May 19th
Cheers to a more challenging and exciting summer with NumPy + Cython.
