We are applying to be a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2012 this year.

At the time of writing we haven't been accepted yet, but here are some ideas the team had collected:

How do I apply as a student?

Well, we need to be accepted as a mentoring org first :)

But then:

  • Submit your application (details coming soon)
  • Join us on IRC and on our mailing lists
  • Set up a development environment via our HackingHowto

It's important that you communicate... most MediaGoblin communication happens on IRC, so you should join there and discuss!


  • More thorough tests; add test coverage script
  • Multi-file submission tool
  • Drag and drop file submission
  • LDAP or other central authentication system plugin
  • "podcast feed" support
  • Kuneco development (OStatus federatoin library)
    • Next generation lxml-based feed support
    • PubSubHubbub hub WSGI application
  • Improved commenting
    • Comment feeds
    • Notification about new comments
      • By e-mail
      • "you have a new comment"?
