Dear students, if you want to apply for doing a Google Summer of Code project with us you can choose a project from this list but you can also present your own idea fitting to any of the Linux Standards Base (LSB) group, OpenPrinting, Driver Backport, Wireless LAN (802.11) and our other work groups. Please note that you have to choose “The Linux Foundation” as your mentoring organization, independent of the workgroup where you want to do your project.
Do not hesitate to ask questions. Please use the contact info (e-mail, IRC) of the workgroup in which you want to do your project. You find it by following the links below.
The Linux Foundation sponsors development in different areas. Each area has a set number of GSoC projects available for 2012 as suggested projects which you can apply for and they are also open for your project suggestion.
