Project ideas can be listed below on per-topic Wiki pages. Please follow the formatting used for the first suggestion.
Submission of unsolicited proposals (via, say, the mailing list mentioned in the next paragraph) is certainly welcome. However, each proposal has a big barrier to pass: it will to need explain why this particular project is of use to the community, and it will have to show how it can be achieved in three months. At a minimum, a submission should also include a review of related packages that address the same or similar problems and discuss how these packages are not sufficient to the task.
A Google groups mailing list has been created for mentors and prospective students. Please subscribe so that you can post to
firstname.lastname@example.org for any discussions pertaining to R and the GSoC 2010.
