Hi folks,

yet again, the registration for Google Summer of Code 2018 has opened.

Like in the previous years, we've setup an ideas page in our wiki:

Same procedure as every year - we need to define more interesting tasks for students to apply for and fellow developers to mentor them. So please feel free to suggest a project and volunteer as mentor or backup mentor as you see fit. You are welcome to edit the wiki directly or just post your suggestion here.

Please keep in mind that a potential student should be able to finish the project successfully in time.

GSoC offers a lot of potential gain for FFmpeg as it brings in new contributors that might become active developers in our community afterwards. So dedicating some of our time to mentor as many projects as we should be in our best interest.

The application deadline is January 23th which is exactly two weeks from now. Therefore, let's try to define new tasks soon.
