The time has come to start thinking about GSoC 2019. The application deadline for mentoring organizations is on February 6. I'd like to get a solid list of project ideas for potential student applications.

I've set up a new page at the Wiki to collect ideas and seeded it with two from the GSoC 2018 page:

https://wiki.dlang.org/GSOC_2019_Ideas

I invite everyone to add ideas to the list. Please be as descriptive as you can in your summaries, and be explicit about the goals the project should achieve. We want projects that are both necessary and challenging.

Anyone who is interested in participating as a student or a mentor, please contact me (aldacron@gmail.com). Be sure to visit the GSOC FAQ for links to details about what both roles entail:

https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/faq

I'll be putting out more information in the coming weeks, here and on the blog.

Hi Mike,
I can see from the previous GSOC entries in the wiki that there are many projects that are still interesting IMHO.

Even my entry is just a rehash of the interest around calypso given that we now have dpp.

Why aren't they included in the current GSOC page?

Also, shouldn't students propose after the Dlang foundation gets accepted?

I don't want to blindly copy project ideas from the old pages to the new one. I don't know what information is still relevant, any new forums discussions or other links that can provide more background, etc. I encourage anyone who added ideas to the older pages to update them as needed for the new page.

If we don't have a good number of ideas before I submit our application, I'll do what I need to do to flesh out the list.

Students should submit their applications to Google at that time, yes. But the timeline for how we handle our own process is entirely up to us. Before I submit our organization application, I want to have a good idea of how many students are interested, how many mentors are interested, and have as many of them paired up as we can get. That will help us move things along more smoothly.

The data frames project might mention libmir. It would be nice if anything done on that front builds on ndslices.

Just a ping to everyone that the application deadline is soon and that if you want to propose a project for this year's GSoC, this is your last chance to add it to the ideas pages.

In doubt, please feel free to reach out to Mike (aldacron@gmail.com) or me (sebastian.wilzbach@gmail.com)
