I got a student (Laouen Belloli) interested in the Reals project. I talked
with him yesterday and I already know his coding level, he was contributing
to another c++ open source project I contribute (Cadmium simulator) .
Should I move the project to prearranged section before you sent the final
proposal for organizations today?
