Dear Smalltalkers,

Tenth GSoC is here and application deadline is earlier this year,
already next Friday!

Time therefore for your cool project ideas on this year Smalltalk GSoC
Hurry up!

For now just express any idea you have here on the mailing list. Later
we will together develop it to be in complete format together with two
mentors needed. To see how fully developed ideas look like please look
at 2012 ones at:http://gsoc2013.esug.org/ideas.

Ideally (but not necessary right now) you should prepare an idea
following this template:

-----------------------------------------------

Title:

Level: (beginner, intermediate, advanced)

Possible mentor: (can be assigned later)

Possible second mentor: (can be assigned later)

Description

Technical Details

Benefits to the Student

Benefits to the Community

-------------------------------------------------

Note also that students yourselves can propose a GSoC project. So if you
like to be a student on this year GSoC and have a nice idea, don't be
shy and propose it here! The community will listen you and guide to the
really nicely proposed project.

For the community, start looking around for students. Think about how to
approach the universities near by you, do you know who to contact
there, etc.

Our special website is in preparation and will be online in few days.
Official Google GSoC site is here:

   http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/homepage/google/gsoc2014.

Specially read carefully the FAQ:

   http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/document/show/gsoc_program/google/gsoc2014/help_page
   
Mentors of all past GSoCs please rejoin the mentors mailing list where
we discuss all details about this year GSoC:

While students interested on GSoC please join a special Smalltalk GSoC
mailing list for you:

Janko I know that you spent a lot of time building this web app now
are you sure that google does not count the slots we get based on the students applications
We are doing our own “cuisine” but the ESUG board does not think that this is not damaging 
ourselves more than simply using the official infrastructure.

Hi!

I have some that are actually needed :)

* Revisiting morphic widgets
  - extracting them in another package
  - removing the update: changes mechanism
  - visit the Pluggable*, and remove duplicates
  - examples examples examples!

* Building the pharo catalog
  - implement the workflow inbox => testing => rules => publish (maybe it exists but since it's not public :))
  - make the metadata available in the image without downloading a configurationOf
  - enhance the configuration browser

* Monkey issue validator
  - improve rules
  - improve feedback (checking tests, style, format)

* New Pharo look and feel

* New Pharo Text Editor
  - we have a text editor that needs some passes
  - integrate it with existing tools
  - integration with Athens
  - pay attention to Mars compatibility

* Nautilus on Ring models
  - browsing remote environments or non loaded code with nautilus
  - this will lead to clean the classes API and Ring code meta model

* One file Pharo :P
   - replace .changes by Epicea
   - ChangeSorter for Epicea
   - sources in image => add or remove sources on demand

* Embedding package metadata with memory filesystem (probably just making a pass to what camillo did)
  - exporting/importing with monticello
  - adding some facilities to add/remove files from the UI
  - browsing embedded resources from nautilus?

* Implementing Cross CVS abstraction
  - Supporting at first monticello.
  - making actual monticello tools (merge, commit, versioner) work on this (or write new ones)
  - Then git?

* A scriptable and command line interface for Pharo
  - Take as example Coral and Scale
  - make Pharo available as a scripting language for the shell
  - REPL interface
  - easy installation => apt-get, deb, brew, windows installer

Hi Janko,

I have a few ideas for Etoys related projects:
- Etoys on the web: Choose a small subset of Etoys features and implement them in Amber.
- Etoys touch UI: Adapt Etoys user interface for touch devices.
- Physical Etoys plugins: Implement all access to external libraries in Physical Etoys through VM plugins instead of FFI.
- Physical Etoys XO bundle: Finally finish the Physical Etoys port to Sugar.

Cheers,
Richo

Hi janko

here is a new and important topic guys discussed over several weeks now.

- Unified FFI frameworks (E. Lorenzano / I. Stasenko)
and ronie salgado is a really impressive student and I’m sure that he can do it!
