General Info

Students, please read information about our application requirements and advice for students in addition to reviewing the ideas on this page. This list is not exclusive, and there are other ways you can define your SoC project idea. Also, please be sure to contribute some code for the module you are applying to work on before or during the application process.

Mentors, the ideas do not have to be only about modules that are in a GNOME suite. If it's a project on GNOME-related software that can benefit the GNOME community, it's also good to list it here.

When adding a project idea, please try to follow those guidelines:

please use this format, as it will be easier to get some information about tasks:

 . '''task title''' (mentor: MentorName linking to you live.gnome.org personal info page)
 * ''Benefits'': describe the benefits of your task
 * ''Requirements'': what should the student know already?
 * Note: one or multiple notes, links, whatever further information
----
