WebKit Summer of Code Projects
With the revised deadline for Google Summer of Code ’08 student applications looming, we’ve been getting a lot of interest in browser-related student projects. I’ve put together a list of some of my favourite ideas.
- GNOME ideas
- WebKit ideas
- Cairo SVG backend completion
- GTK+ port test suite completion
- Mono ideas
- WebKit-based HTML editor
If in doubt, now’s the time to submit proposals. Already-listed ideas are the most likely to get mentored but students are free to propose their own ideas as well. Proposals for incremental improvements will tend to be favoured over ideas for completely new applications, but a proof of concept and/or roadmap can help when submitting plans for larger projects.
Update: There’s no need to keep asking about the status of an application on IRC/private mail etc. It’s a busy time for the upstream developers but they’ll get back in touch as soon as possible.
