Here you'll find information and ideas regarding the 2010 GSoC for the PHP project.
Before you submit your proposal, you are encouraged to contact the possible mentors for the project you are applying. If the project hasn't any mentor assigned or if you are submiting an off-list project, please contact one of our mailing lists to discuss the proposal before submiting it. Likely this will involve firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, but the IRC channels #php.pecl and #php.doc on EFnet also work.
Priority will be given to proposals that are directly related to the PHP Project, this includes PECL and PEAR. If we have any spare slots then we will consider non PHP Project proposals.
If your project is to be written in PHP, please make sure you read the PEAR Coding Standards when applying.
If you are applying for a project in the PHP code itself (in C), you may find useful the PHP hackers guide, which also includes our C coding standards (TBD).
Your proposal should match our Ideas Template, if you are a student and submitting an idea of your own then you should also include:
Several ideas exist that people work on from time to time. GSoC students are encouraged to propose working on one of these or create their own.
