This year we'll try to get Yafaray into the GSoC program. Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is an annual program, held from May to August , in which Google awards stipends to students who successfully complete a requested free software / open-source coding project during the summer. The program is open to students aged 18 or over. To apply for GSoC, we must put together an Ideas Page, where we explain a bit which projects could be useful for YafaRay. This is our ideas page:
We are looking for students and mentors for the projects listed in our ideas page. We are also interested in users, prospective students and mentors' input to improve it. If you want to participate, please use this forum thread to express your opinions and to talk about your areas of interest. You can also contact us in the chat room.
