Summer Of Code 2008

Google announced the project lists for Summer Of Code 2008. Some of the more interesting projects from my perspective:

Adium

Dojo Foundation

FFmpeg

Gallery

Inkscape

Joomla!

The Mozilla Project

MySQL

PHP

Pidgin

WebKit

WordPress

Summer of Code 2

Greg Stein left a comment yesterday about being able to submit an application to work on Mozilla for Google’s “Summer of Code” even if it isn’t listed. This morning I submitted a proposal. The basic premise is to allow me to accelerate my development of the reporter tool, including some server side changes (to help prevent abuse), and getting started (this is most likely longer term) on screenshot support, so users can submit a screenshot of the issue they have (should they choose to do so, it will be an option for obvious privacy reasons).

It sounds like a great opportunity, and a good excuse to give my Mozilla contributions greater priority.

Thanks to Greg for giving me the heads up on that.
