Google Summer of Code 1020

The following list are ideas for projects we think would make good Google Summer of Code candidates.


Suggested Projects

CLI front-end to pc-sysinstall

This project would be to write a command-line based front-end to our new system installer backend, pc-sysinstall. This could be done in curses, or other command-line API. This project being completed may allow us to look at getting it, and pc-sysinstall into the FreeBSD tree as a replacement for the outdated "SysInstall".


Improved Wine support on BSD

There are a number of open-issues with the "Wine" application on the BSD platform, which hinders Windows compatibility with many applications. Some of the important issues would be the copy-protection support, fixes for memory management, etc.


Applying for GSoC

If you are interested in applying for a GSoC internship, please send the following information, along with your project proposal to the PC-BSD Developers mailing list.
