[opensuse-project] GSoC: Schedule Complications

I am interested in participating in the GSoC this year.  I have a
project in mind
which would be "right up my alley;"  namely, Qt, openSUSE and
packaging semantics are my interests, and I am a big Qt enthusiast.
However, I have a full-time framing construction job.

My job schedule is unpredictable; I could have a straight month of
work, and then several weeks off in between the next job.  Each job
takes ~5 weeks.

In my upcoming job, I will be working 60 minutes away, coming home
every night and working Monday through Saturday.  If I utilized 30-60
minutes a night on the project and every Sunday, 2 hours a day while
traveling, I could pull off 30-35 hours a week.

In the next job (starting about May 9th), we will be working 2 1/2
hours away, staying in hotels over the week and taking Friday-Sunday
off.  Meaning that I could pull 42-53 hours a week.

Although I am perfectly capable of spending ALL my spare time on
programming/research (I have done it before), I am not going to
pretend that ALL of the time I have mentioned will be free for the
project; I do have to take care of myself!

I have discussed this (briefly) on GSoC's IRC channel, and they said,
"No way, Hose!"  I never mentioned how much time I would be able to
devote... What is your input?
