PackageKit Google Summer of Code Ideas

PackageKit Google Summer of Code Ideas:

  • urpmi backend for Mandriva
  • portage backend for Gentoo
  • ports backend for FreeBSD
  • Rewrite opyum or APTonCD to support libpackagekit and be distribution neutral
  • Design a KDE front-end suitable for upstream inclusion
  • Profiling for memory and speed with a security review of the packagekitd daemon
  • Design of an end-to-end test harness for .rpm and .deb on temporary
    repositories for complete self check

If you are interested in any of these ideas then please email me and I'll give you more details.

    What mentoring organization are you running these under? FWIW, Fedora is supporting a whole range of projects and we like to have ideas that benefit the upstream; it fits our methodology. PackageKit ideas would be cool. If you don't have them already slotted under another mentoring org, please feel free to bring them to Fedora: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SummerCoding/2008/Ideas
