Branches: MAIN
CVS tags: HEAD
Prune ill-specified projects; just leave traces of them in the "ideas" page.

Not all of the unclassified projects were useless though; some of them had
decent content, so I have just added tags to classify them appropriately
instead of just deleting them.

title="Normalize and Summarize Email Threads"


[David Young](

duration="3 months"

Write a program that can read an email, infer quoting conventions,
discern bottom-posted emails from top-posted emails, and rewrite
the email using the conventions that the reader prefers.  Then,
take it a step further: write a program that can distill an entire
email discussion thread into one document where every writer's
contribution is properly attributed and appears in its proper place
with respect to interleaved quotations.
