Perl 6
Summer of Code Ideas: Revision 8

This is a random collection of what students could do in Google's Summer of Code project in 2009 (not yet officially announced, but it will take place)

If you add another idea here, please append your nick name, so that people know whom to contact for more information or shared brainstorming

Parrot

Improve testing functions of Parrot (like we still need warns_ok() I think) (leto)

Rakudo

Help writing the Prelude (ie the run-time part of the compiler) in Perl 6 (moritz)

Test Suite

The test suite always has much work to offer. A student could generally improve it (as done by Auzon last year), or pick a particular topic and focus on that. More specific ideas welcome. (moritz)

Documentation

Write user-level Perl 6 documentation (moritz, masak)

Canonical Problem Set for Perl 6 (leto)

SMOP/Mildew

  1. SMOP uses a reference counting garbage collector, and mildew is curretly with several memory leaks. A project to solve that memory leaks is very much interesting for the future of SMOP and should guide you through all the funghi.
