I just started http://wiki.dlang.org/GSOC_2013_Ideas. I'll add some tomorrow; we
should have quite a few before the application deadline (March 29) in order to
strengthen our application.
Please chime in!
A few for people to comment on before anything gets added to the page:
-- QtD and GtkD. I'm not 100% up to date on the status of these (I write
numerical simulations, not applications...) but these should surely be
brought up to date with the latest versions of Qt and GTK+. Having a
well-working QtD seems to me important given the recent announcements
by Ubuntu favouring Qt (I'm thinking, Qt + Ubuntu Touch + D compiling on
ARM offers some nice opportunities...).
-- I'd second the call for really good integration with Python and for
-- Making the frontend, runtime and Phobos fully backend-agnostic so that
new versions can be merged into other compilers (GDC, LDC, ...) with a
minimal amount of work.
-- A complete set of containers (emphasis on Set:-) for std.containers, and
also address the performance issues that have been identified with current
-- Reimplement random number generators as well designed reference types.
-- A std.bigfloat to go alongside std.bigint.
-- Didn't someone say std.numeric needed to be rebuilt from the ground up?
