So, I'm looking to complete the application for this year's GSoC (Google Summer of Code, for those unfamiliar). Unlike previous years, they actually want our application hosted with them as opposed to a link to what we want in our wiki.
It supports markdown, which is awesome, but when I go to pull what we have and put it in a text editor that counts characters, we're at 2035 characters when we need to be at 1500. Again, this is with the relevant markup which unfortunately counts against us.
The source I speak of (for those with a wiki account is): http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php?title=SOC_Application_Template&a...
Is there anyone with the time and inclination to help keep the substance while cutting down on the fat? (It looks lean to me as a start, but as you can tell by this email, brevity isn't normally a strong point for me)
Our application needs to be complete by the 9th and this is one piece of it that I could really use a hand on due to my obligations for SCALE which are overlapping right now.
I don't know that the main text itself that we host needs to be cut down as much as we should start a second copy that is intended for brevity, with shorturls and all that to help too.
