A somewhat popular question we hear with regards to Google Summer of Code is "I'm a student. Please guide me through the process." Even though we already have a description in the wiki, good ol' Mukund :) wrote another overview how to proceed, for the case of porting GIMP filters to GEGL operations.

By the way, since last night the goat-invasion branch of GIMP can register GEGL operations in menu.

We also had to apply a number of changes to GEGL that break API and ABI. So v2.8 will depend on a new version of GEGL that will be released shortly before or along with GIMP 2.8 (whenever :))
