OK, ofcourse, any effort you put in after the GSoC period should be
purely based on your interest. In other words, there is no GSoC
requirement to do anything beyond the pencils down date -- 8/16 :-)

There is a set process to go through for releasing. Releasing requires
promotion out of the Commons Sandbox first, which requires a vote.
After promotion, the code needs to be packaged and approved for
release by another vote. We can discuss this in more detail when we
think the code is ready.
