I have begun the process of crafting Google Summer of Code pages in our
trac wiki. You can find them here:
The information and pages may look quite familiar, as I am refactoring a
bit of last years information into "General" info and "Year Specific"
info. But its all good information, none the less.
Of particular interest at the moment is our Ideas page.
One of the criteria a mentoring organization is judged on is its Ideas
page. A well rounded set of ideas, that range from beginner/easy to
adept/advanced, will help entice a variety of students to participate
with E during the GSoC. Do keep in mind that the project is intended to
be "full time work" for a student for the summer. So make sure the
difficulty and scope are appropriate.
Please feel free to add constructive ideas at this time. If you are a
E-user who has an idea please stop by in #e on Freenode and discuss it.
We would love to hear your ideas. Likewise for prospective students.
If you would like to participate as a student and think you have a
winning idea... by all means, please stop by and discuss.
If you are an eligible mentor and see an idea on the page and you are
interested in mentoring it, please feel free to add your name to the
project. You might also add your name to the "Mentors" page. Final
mentor assignments will be made when the time is appropriate. It is
desirable to have at least two mentors on each project.
It's good to note at this time that while we hope to get accepted as a
mentoring organization.... We have not been accepted yet. No
organizations have yet, in fact.
