This wasn't meant to be an accusation. Sorry if I made it sound like

The point is that various comments you made on my proposal as well as
others, made me conclude that you have totally different opinions about
what is appropriate for a SoC task.

As for that other proposal, your intial comment sounded very much like
you do not consider it a suitable task at all; when I asked (on IRC) why
you think so, you suggested I write something up, but didn't follow up
on my questions. I'm still not sure what you really want, when talking
about "concise wording".

I don't know how the proposals are presented to the students. When we
gathered ideas for GGI, we had a single sentence/wordgroup as title for
each task, and one or more paragraphs explaining it: Introducing the
relevant concepts, pointing out what is missing or what could be
improved, and explaining what the student is supposed to do

Anyways, I guess it's too late for this year anyways. Maybe next year.
(Yeah, my fault -- I should have made the proposal much earlier.)
