add links for status reports on each project's Google Summer of Code 2007 Project

This wiki is for organizing our participation, keeping track of the projects, tasks, and publishing news. Potential mentors and student applicants can (and should) suggest projects using the links below. However, don't forget that, once you find something you are interested in, you will also need to apply directly to Google.

To edit pages, if you don't already have a trac login, you will need to register one. (See buttons top right)


2007-05-28: Coding has officially started.

2007-04-12: Google and announce the winning 9 proposals. (See below)

2007-04-07: Google has allocated 9 funded places. (We requested 22). Ranking will continue, then results will be published on 11th April.

2007-03-27: The student deadline has passed. Mentors are now ranking proposals.

2007-03-23: The deadline for student proposals to Google has been extended to Mon 26th.

2007-03-19: An IRC channel called #haskell-soc has been created on, for all participants (and bystanders).

2007-03-16: Student applications are now open''

2007-03-15': has been officially accepted as a mentoring organisation for the 2007 Google Summer of Code.

Accepted proposals

Here they are! The list states

  • project title,
  • the student who will be funded,
  • the primary mentor from,
  • and a set of backup mentors who have expressed interest in looking after things too. (These sets may continue to grow.)

Want to earn $4500 for 3 months work hacking in Haskell? Go to our ideas page, browse around, and write up a proposal for something you would like to work on. You must be available to work basically full-time for the months of June to August (inclusive). Proposals are competitive against other students. Last year, nine were funded. Your deadline for application is 26th March.

Anyone else:

Got any good ideas for coding projects, but no time to work on them yourself? Add it into the database! Or do you feel you could be either a primary or backup mentor for a student project in an area of your interest, even if it isn't a project you defined yourself? We need willing members of the community to foster the new student talent, so sign up on the People page if you would like to be involved. Obviously you will need Haskell coding experience, but also be able to advise on time management, strategies for gaining a userbase and keeping them happy, ways of interacting with the wider Haskell community, and so on.

Starting Points



Tickets <= #86 were proposals from 2006. Many of those ideas are still good.

Students can often find it difficult to pitch a proposal just right for the time available. Mentors (or anybody else with experience) should add comments to proposals, like: off-topic, too easy, too hard, too vague. Please also give suggestions for improvement, helping to tighten-up and clarify what would be cool about the project.

We will probably try to have a backup mentor for every project in the final allocation, so feel free to put yourself down for a proposal, even if you might not be confident enough to be lead mentor.


Old Starting Points

There may be some useful historical stuff here to help with this year's applications:

Trac documentation: TracGuide, Trac FAQ, TracSupport.
