If you are a student and want to spend your summer on Gentoo projects
and having fun writing code, you can start discussing ideas in the #gentoo-soc IRC Freenode channel .
You can find some ideas example here , but of course could be also something different.
Just remember that we strongly recommend that you work with a potential mentor to develop your idea before proposing it formally. Don’t waste any time because there’s typically some polishing which needs to occur before the deadline (March 28th)
I can assure you that Gentoo GSoC is really fun and a great experience for improving yourself. It is also useful for making yourself known in the Gentoo community. Contributing to the Gentoo GSoC will be contributing to Gentoo, a bleeding edge distribution, considered by many to be for experts and with near-unlimited adaptability.
If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us  or check the Gentoo GSoC 2018 wiki page .
