This page covers all student-based work projects done during non-school time. Examples include:

  • Google Summer of Code
  • Fedora internships


The Summer coding ideas for 2009 page is open.

To get the widest selection of ideas, we are not slotting them in to a particular program at the start. It is possible for projects to happen across summer coding programs, with different students working on similar or complementary components, from different programs.

The community is proposing within the same group as Fedora, and their ideas page is here:

Google Summer of Code participation in Fedora

This section is for students and mentors working as part of Fedora's Summer of Code effort.


If you want to mentor a student, review project proposals, or act as a back-up mentor, do the following:

  1. Look at the timeline so you know where we are in the process.
  2. Post your name on Summer coding mentors for 2009; we may discontinue this step if we can track all this visibly via the Google web app.
  3. Fill out a profile and apply to be a mentor to the Fedora project via the GSoC web app.
  4. Sign up for the 'redhat-summer-mentors' and 'redhat-summer' groups. Most discussion of student projects should occur with the students on the latter.
  5. Introduce yourself to the list if you want others to know you are there.


  1. Look at the timeline so you know where we are in the process.
  2. Look at the list of Fedora ideas and decide if you are going to propose on one of them, or generate your own idea.
  3. Sign up for the 'redhat-summer' group.
  4. Begin discussion with the mentor who suggested the idea on the redhat-summer mailing list to learn more about the idea and what to propose.
  5. Follow the timeline closely so you know when to discuss, when to propose, and so forth.
