Right now, my answer would be "no". This looks like "yet another edge
detection filter".

True, although it seems like a better edge-detector than anything we
have so far.

This might be caused by mutual problem with the english language - from
your description, there seems to be much more than is visible in the
example images, almost like you're trying to convert an image to a
vector representation with the ability to restore the bitmap image (the
"parameters" your were talking about?).

You should show us why your approach it is outstanding - for example,
how it performs in comparison to other edge detection filters in GIMP.
Also, a short summary of possible uses (image analysis?, image
recognition?) would help us to understand what a user can do with your

One thing you might consider is that it appears that you already have
working code, and in that case, converting that working code into a
working GIMP plugin is usually a fairly straightforward process that
is far less work than the scope of a typical SoC project.  If there is
a way you can think of broadening your proposal, it would help.  You
obviously have the education and experience that is most useful in a
GIMP collaborator.

There are several example projects you might be interested in tackling
alongside converting your code into a GIMP plugin.  Perhaps one of
those captures your imagination.  Some of them involve plug-ins, so
would be a natural tie-in.

You also might want to propose doing some work in translating the GIMP
UI and/or help into your native language.  While pure documentation
work is not allowed by Google, I see nothing that forbids *any*
documentation work, and depending on the state of the translation of
gimp into your native tongue, it could be a great help to us.  Still,
if you do that, I suggest that you make at least one other proposal
(Google allows you up to 20!) in case it gets disqualified.
