Student: Jun Zheng(Jeremyzheng)
Mentor: Jingsheng Wang (skyredwang)
Current status:
Mr. Wang created C2DM project page a few years ago, but he hasn’t written the actual code. I have studied the documentation that he has pointed out on the project page. I am looking forward to starting this project with Google Summer of Code 2012 program.
