Once again, Gentoo is applying for the Google Summer of Code!

A still rather short mentoring guide and a guide for students who wish to apply. Note to students, student applications aren't open yet (heck we haven't even been accepted!).

You may wish to peruse the current idea list. :D

We need mentors and we need project ideas. The hope here is to have three to five really strong projects and six to ten mentors.

Note that mentors need not be Gentoo developers. The mentor list will be reviewed and people that are deemed not a good fit will probably not be accepted as mentors.

If you have any ideas for projects that would be suitable for Gentoo in the SoC, post them here or to the gentoo-soc@lists.gentoo.org mailing list.

my idea is related to general unix-like os networking, not specifically gentoo, i am unsure if that is what you want to hear.

preamble:
net-firewall/nufw is some piece of very good software but requires additional software to be installed on client machines.
microsoft has a working solution for adjusting firewall settings on a per user basis without requiring additional client software (internet security and acceleration server).

idea:
a solution on base of samba and iptables should be possible to implement quite easily.
samba "knows" about the clients that are logged on to the domain(s) and knows the ip addresses of theses users.
a ruleset has to be made that decides which user is allowed to do what on the network.
a daemon ensures a (secure) connection between the domain controller(s) and the iptables enabled machine(s).
on each logon/logoff (or timeout) event on the domain(s) the according rulesets are parsed and the firewall tables are altered.
that's it.
all thoughts welcome.

I think project "packages.gentoo.org" begs for a search function.

Without search function that page is not much of use. For example I've noticed that Asterisk was upgraded to ver. 1.2.27 and wanted look at the change log; it is impossible to find it.
Even if I sort by categories and go to net-misc the page displays only one page and it is impossible to advance to next page.

the old p.g.o had such a search function. and you are right, that would be cool.
i know, that's not what you wanted, but when you know the category of a package, than you can manually enter the url, like http://packages.gentoo.org/package/app-portage/eix.

I think the long overdue redesign of www.gentoo.org might be a nice project. I could mentor that.

Google requires that a project involves actual _code_ (and html/css doesn't count). If a site redesign were to involve using a webapp, then that would fly as a project, but we're really quite happy with static pages (or at least cached static pages, since the xml is rendered to html).

The major goal of a www.gentoo.org redesign would be to make the site more navigable. As it is now, it's often easier to use google to find Gentoo pages than to navigate from the front page. It's a project that anybody who wants to could work on and submit examples, and it would be incredibly useful to us, but it can't be part of SOC.

you are right, g2boojum, google is quite useful here, this could be improved. the search functionality of the forums is quite limited too, but i guess that's the fault of phpbb and cannot be easily changed... or is there a way to use a different search "module" or something?

The specification for EAPI "1" is well established, it is EAPI "0" with the addition of SLOT based dependencies, the ability to specify default USE settings in IUSE and the behavior of src_compile() can be modified by setting ECONF_SOURCE. Problems defining it stem from the fact that EAPI "0" is not presently fully and explicitly specified. There are existing efforts underway to complete the specification of EAPI "0".

Well EAPI-1 can't really be defined unless EAPI-0 is ;)
so nail down EAPI-0 then

Since the forums have been so popular and the database grown so large, they had reduced the number of keywords that search will store in its database. It was a performance issue, search was taking longer and longer to give results. That happened a few years ago if I remember correctly.
