The following projects have been chosen for Google Summer of Code™ this year (sorted by student's last name):
  • Port Linux's drm/kms/gem/i915
  • Student: Myron Aub
  • System upgrade
  • Student: gnrp
  • Implement file system flags to scrub data blocks before deletion

We hope these students will have an interesting, successful, and also fun summer working with us, heap glory upon their names and do their mentors proud. :)

We thank all students who discussed and submitted proposals; as in every year, slots are limited and we have to let go worthy proposals. [2 comments]



How is it possible to port Linux's drm/kms/gem/i915? There is no license problem?

By chance, the drm / kms / gem code is under a BSD-like license. We have already some old drm code in tree.
