GSoC Project Ideas

Are you looking for things that could occupy your time over the summer break? There are several proposals that are looking for some enthusiastic support:

We are also very keen to have a student or two adopt a mature Activity. This would involve completing a set of non-trivial patches for a particular Activity. This is a great opportunity to get to know how others' code is written. You'll be able to show to your future employers that you're able to fit in nicely with a currenty software project.

Proposal Template
