Ideas: Google Summer of Code 2010
Scroll to the bottom of this page for all the pages in the 2010 ideas category.
Looking for JBoss.org ideas? http://community.jboss.org/wiki/GoogleSummerofCode2010
If you provide a use case and some ideas of how to solve, you give more room for students to put in their own ideas and passion. + Consider if that is possible for each of your project ideas.
Prepare a project idea page, part of which is included on this page.
To learn how to add an idea to this page, read How to create an idea page for Summer Coding.

Summary of idea: The creation of an official KDE Netbook Edition Spin for Fedora 14

Summary of idea: A step by step process of joining the Fedora Project.
Contacts: Mike McGrath
Mentor(s): Mike McGrath
Notes: Right now when new users sign up for an account, they have NO idea what to do next. One common thing is applying for a bunch of seemingly random groups, then trying to ssh to fedorapeople. Then just having your applications sit there… forever never getting approved.
I’d like for the account system to have a simple wizard interface (via a plugin), welcomes users, explains how Fedora works and explains how to apply for groups and what to expect. We may have to come up with a standard way to apply for groups, to be discussed.
Summary of idea: The Fedora PackageDB contains information that both developers and end users would find useful about the applications and packages in Fedora. There are a large variety of changes that could be useful for it ranging from the mundane (example: porting to TurboGears2, adjusting the way we link between the Application and Package interfaces) to redesigning the database model, or including new features.

Summary of idea: Copr (Cool Other Package Repo) is a Fedora project to help make building and managing third party package repositories easy. Copr is being implemented this summer by Seth Vidal and Toshio Kuratomi. They would welcome help from interested students.
