Non-Coding Project Ideas

The projects listed below are of real interest to Sugar Labs. But because GSoC projects must involve programming, these non-coding projects cannot be done as part of that program. If you are nonetheless interested in pursuing one of these projects, please contact project the mentor(s).


Title Mentor Project
Maintenance of activities.sugarlabs.org (ASLO) SCG
Brief explanation
http://activities.sugarlabs.org/ is the Sugar Labs app store, where activities are hosted and downloaded. During GSoC 2017 we built ASLO v3 to address a number of deficiencies. But we have a few odds and ends that need to be addressed to bring the new site on line.
Expected results
Update missing license and repository info on the activities found in the Sugar Labs github repository. Popular the database for the new ASLO. Do extensive testing (including creating some test suites.) Document future maintenance on the Wiki.
Knowledge prerequisites
PHP, MySQL, Python, Apache, cron, PHP-Cake, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and git. See [1].
