Dear MARKUS ,
Please let me know the format of the proposal to be submitted as the 27

The topic is "AUTOMATED ERROR CHECKING IN CALC" FOR GSoC 2K15.
I am working on the easy hack "Currency Dropdown Menu", you can also
confirm my work from there.
I have already mailed you my ideas including the ones of my own.
