I'd say my project has gone quite well. I've completed the main objectives 
of my project, including fixing the shell namespace implementation of 
Control Panel, improving the built-in control panel, and working on some new 
control panels to improve Wine's configuration options (Add/Remove Programs, 
plus a new Desktop control panel that I'm just tidying up ready to submit 
this week). While I will have university-related things to carry on with in 
September, I'm not intending to disappear completely - I'm hoping to split 
off and tidy up the multimedia settings in winecfg to its own control panel, 
too, and then tidy up winecfg a bit, making it more logical by restricting 
it to panels that are specific to Wine itself. So hopefully you'll still see 
me around a bit. :-)

Overall, I rather enjoyed Summer of Code, and learnt a lot about how to go 
about getting things done in an open source environment. Thanks to all, 
particularly my mentor Juan, for help and support along the way!
