The Google Summer of Code 2011 has been launched. The Mozilla Project has had the honour of participating in every SoC so far, and intends to submit a request to take part again. This means we need to produce a list of suitable student projects in the next four weeks.
We are collecting ideas for every part of the project – Firefox, Thunderbird, Camino, Seamonkey, Bugzilla, L10n, NSS, Drumbeat and many more. If you have a proposal, head over to the Brainstorming page. Please read the instructions at the top – following them vastly increases your chances of your idea getting added to the formal Ideas page.
Note that, in order to have much chance of going ahead, ideas need to have a suitable mentor. So if you submit an idea and you aren’t available to or suitable to mentor it, you may want to go about trying to find one by politely emailing experienced hackers in the appropriate areas of the code.
