That is correct.

I think this one will be unique in that we don't expect you to implement
everything and I doubt if that is even possible given the time frame.
We, Joel and I (Man, that will be confusing having tow Joels), intend
to have close collaboration with the student. We expect you to be working
closely with us in implementing the above.

I think an overall description would suffice at this point.
