Google Summer of Code 2013 Ideas
See also KTp/GSoC2012_Ideas for last years ideas.
Give some love to KRFB
This could involve bits of (better) telepathy integration.
Kick-ass demo of tubes.
I ideally want my collaborative editor plugin in kate. To make us more than just "another IM client."
I think I've seen this idea before, more than once, and it turned out to be more complicated than we thought... I don't know... Now we have d-bus tubes, of course, which may change things. -- George K.
3 more months on that would make a real difference. I can't see it moving forwards without someone really stepping up. We can probably get someone from Plasma to co-mentor. I'll have all the declarative plugins all nice and awesome by then.
Unit testing our library
I'm not sure anyone would want to do that. Partly because it's boring, and partly because unit testing something with dbus stuff is very hard.
Maybe... For some people (like me), this could be very interesting as well... -- George K.
Stabilization of the library
Unit tests, cleanup, api review, documentation and stuff like that. This project might also include porting to Qt5 + KDE Frameworks and make it ready to be a KDE framework itself...
TpQt CM bindings
Crazy idea Could we get a student to work on TpQt and finish the CM bindings? I had a look, and quite a bit is done... the code is not /that/ hard.
Awesome idea too, given that I doubt anybody will ever do that work otherwise, and might also give us a new maintainer for telepathy-qt. But it requires quite some skills... -- George K.
And a guy here who knows TpQt very well. It would need you, Dario, or someone at Collabora (Andrunko?) on board for this to happen. Collabora have been part of GSOC before, so they might be happy to invest time to mentor. -- David
If we find a good student, I think that could be arranged. For the moment, I volunteer to be the contact for any student that wishes to discuss this idea. -- George
Activities and KTp + Non-Global Presence
Nepomuk and KTp
file transfer metadata, tagging chats, rating for accounts/contacts, whatever comes into the student's mind
Desktop files for services
(Dan already implemented part of this, we still need actions based on the installed files, filtering and perhaps more)
Work on call ui
KTp KIO Slave
KTp and Zeitgeist
Interested in being mentors
