I would suggest to not to give any promises of *effective* effort for
8 hours per day for 6 days. GSoC does not ask you to be that specific.
How much time does GSoC participation take?
You are expected to spend around 30+ hours a week working on your
project during the 3 month coding period.

You write "Interest in Project" as what motivates you to participate in GIL,
then you write "Extensions of this project beyond summer of code".

In between, you actually should describe
- what project you'd like to work on
- what functionality you would like to add to GIL
- name algorithms and techniques you would like to implement.

The section later "Implementation Details of Project" feels too much, and
unnecessary. It seem to mix API description with algorithms description
and implementation details, with attempt to squeeze all those into
tiny paragraph.
Your proposal does not need all those details (for this stage of GSoC).

What is more important, the section "Implementation Details of Project"
lists a lot of algorithms and processing techniques.
Are you planning to implement all of them during this GSoC?

I'd suggest to make the proposal more focused, to make it clear what
you want to work on, what is the project about.
...sometimes "less is more"

Take my comments as friendly but subjective piece of advice,
opinionated though, and not as any authoritative one.

Mateusz Loskot,
