GSoC 2013 : I'm in :)

Hey there! I'm Anmol Ahuja, and I've just been accepted into this year's Google Summer of Code program to hack on Amarok, working on improving it's scripting interface under Mark Kretschmann [markey], who also happens to be the Amarok founder, as my mentor.

I've been involved with Amarok for some time now, and have a few patches committed as well (thanks to Matěj Laitl [strohel] for reviewing and committing them). For more details on all the other students accepted to work on Amarok as well, see Matěj's blog post. He's the guy responsible for the great iPod support in Amarok, and he'll now be working on a much needed MTP rewrite this GSoC.

I'd like to thank the Amarok team and KDE for accepting me. This is my first Summer of Code, and I'm really looking forward to working with them.

On a related note, Amarok Script Authors please provide feedback on what you'd like to see in the scripting interface here ( http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?t=111061 ) so I can work on implementing it.
