After a successful participation in Google Summer of Code ’09, the Maemo Community intend to apply this year again, in order to have a strong proposal we need everybody’s help. We are currently looking for project ideas, mentors and backup mentors.

Do have a killer idea for a Maemo application ? Add it here: http://wiki.maemo.org/GSoC_2010/Project_ideas

If you want to help as a mentor or co-mentor, read this instructions: http://wiki.maemo.org/GSoC_2010/Mentors

For this year, we intend to concentrate the students effort around end-user applications, but improvements to other projects under the Maemo umbrella are also acceptable and welcome.

As part of the Extras Q&A process, the Maemo Community created a Testing Squad, in order to kick start the the testing process and provide better software for the Maemo users.

We’re correctly looking for some more testers, before start refining the Q&A processes, so if you like to test new shiny apps from our community developers, feel free to join the team, if you don’t feel ready or without enough skills for this task, you still can keep following the group activities and doing some testing in the easier areas.
