This discussion forum is a place to post ideas you would like to see a student (maybe you!) take on as part of Google/PSU Summer of Code 2006. All ideas welcome, and open for discussion.
In 2005, we had an emphasis on open hardware (esp. rockets and radios), but a variety of kinds of projects. X.org is participating in Summer of Code this year, so stuff related to our X Window System work may be better pitched there.
All in all, we're interested in novel projects that might otherwise fall through the cracks of Summer of Code, but that we can effectively mentor within our community. Let us know what you want to see, and we'll try to accomodate that.
We are currently forming our 2006 Advisory Board to help us review applications and mentor projects. As that comes online, we will let you know here.
Welcome to Google/PSU Summer of Code 2006!
