Hi All,
Following Rajan's prompt I have made a start on a wiki page to detail OSM's
participation in the 2010 Google Summer of Code (

The page includes a draft proposal for OSM to apply to GSoC when the
programme starts, but I think it would be worth us starting on a list of
potential projects.
I have had a look through previous GSoC pages and the 'Student Projects'
wiki page, but I am not sure which are still appropriate, and which have
been superseded by other work.

Please can you give some thought to potential projects for students and add
them to the wiki page?  The thing to remember is that the projects need to
be pretty well defined and be achievable in a relatively short time period.

Feel free to add comments to the proposals so that we get the most useful
set of potential projects.

This is an opportunity for OSM to get some help with coding, and is a useful
learning experience for students, so please give some thought to what you
would like to see worked on!
