DokuWiki was a mentoring organization for 2011's Google Summer of Code and has decided to apply for 2012.
If you are interested in applying for getting a stipend for working at DokuWiki make sure you've read and understood the information on the official GSoC 12 website and the information below. Noting the dates you can find on the timeline in order to make sure you don't miss them is probably a good idea, too.
Below you can find our ideas you can use, but we encourage you to discuss your own ideas with us, too. You should however discuss your ideas before you submit your application so we can make sure your ideas match our expectations and you've really understood what you need to do in order to implement a certain feature. All of our ideas aren't like “I take this idea” but require your own, additional ideas, too. You need to put more details about how exactly you want to implement an idea into your application, for some of the ideas we've also listed some special points you should include into your application.
You can already get started getting familiar with DokuWiki, fix bugs, implement small features etc.. Of course your official GSoC project needs to be different from that, but being already familiar with DokuWiki gives you both advantages during application (because you will understand much better how a certain feature can be implemented) and during the actual work where you can get started right away. The FAQ of the Google Summer of Code states explicitly that as long as you fulfill all requirements you can continue working for projects during GSoC you have been working for before.
If you want some more detailed information on how the whole Google Summer of Code works the GSoCStudentGuide is a really good and extensive guide for students.
This is list shall give you a rough overview over each idea. You can find a lot more information at the pages of the individual pages. Please don't add your own ideas here but instead contact the mailinglist or one of the mentors listed above if you have your own ideas (which is of course great). These ideas aren't sorted in any particular order so please don't pick just the first idea.
The green headings are links to a page for each idea that provides much more information than these short summaries.
If DokuWiki should be accepted as mentoring organization you will be able to apply between March 26 19:00 UTC and April 6 19:00 UTC as student for GSoC on the official website. Please make sure you include the following points into your application. This is meant as help for you, if you don't follow this list but still cover the points this is okay, too.
