They are sometimes vague or incomplete. If you wish to submit a proposal based on these ideas, you may wish to contact the developers and find out more about the particular suggestion you're looking at. Being accepted as a Google Summer of Code student is quite competitive. Accepted students typically have thoroughly researched the technologies of their proposed project and have been in frequent contact with potential mentors. Simply copying and pasting an idea here will not work. On the other hand, creating a completely new idea without first consulting potential mentors is unlikely to work out. When writing your proposal or asking for help from the general KDE community don't assume people are familiar with the ideas here. KDE is really big! If there is no specific contact given you can ask questions on the general KDE development list [email protected] See the KDE mailing lists page for information on available mailing lists and how to subscribe. Adding a Proposal Note Follow the template of other proposals! Project: Brief explanation: Expected results: Knowledge Prerequisite: Mentor: When adding an idea to this section, please try to include the following data: if the application is not widely known, a description of what it does and where its code lives a brief explanation the expected results pre-requisites for working on your project if applicable, links to more information or discussions mailing list or IRC channel for your application/library/module your name and email address for contact (if you're willing to be a mentor) If you are not a developer but have a good idea for a proposal, get in contact with relevant developers first. Ideas Your Own Idea Project: Something that you're totally excited about Brief explanation: Do you have an awesome idea you want to work on with KDE but that is not among the ideas below? That's cool. We love that! But please do us a favor: Get in touch with a mentor early on and make sure your project is realistic and within the scope of KDE. That will spare you and us a lot of frustration. Expected results: Something you and KDE loves Knowledge Prerequisite: Probably C++ and Qt but depends on your project Mentor: Try to see who in KDE is interested in what you want to work on and approach them. If you are unsure you can always ask in #kde-soc on Freenode IRC.
