Call for GSoC Projects

Dear All,

This year as usual we're going to apply for the participation in GSoC.
The students application window will start mid March. So, there is
some time to update Open Projects pages!

Please spend some time reviewing the project listed there and refine
them, if necessary. If you have some fresh cool project which you
expect to be suitable for GSoC and useful for the LLVM Project -
please do not hesitate to list it in the corresponding Open Projects
page.

Thanks!

Dear Anton,

Would it be alright to add a "Projects with LLVM" list to the Open Projects page? Many of the projects that I have mentored in the past and would like to mentor in the future make heavy use of LLVM even though they don't contribute to the LLVM source base directly. I think these projects are valuable to our community as they provide an additional opportunity to get students using LLVM.

I'd like to add them to a list somewhere to make prospective applicants aware of them, but I want to make sure that the Open Projects page is the right place in which to do that.

Regards,

John Criswell

I realize that this is somewhat of an umbrella, but I just opened this review http://reviews.llvm.org/D17089 (for generalizing various currently-target-specific passes) that I think could lead to a worthwhile project.

Thanks again,
Hal

I think yes, this is a good idea.
