...this is about the perfect moment to hopefully get one of my projects up
and running: Wine in Academics[tm]. As some of you might know, we (ITOMIG)
have a nice working agreement with professor Spruth at Tübingen university.
He's willing to supervise academic projects based on Wine. So far, we have
Michael, who's starting his work on the subject of porting Windows-based
applications using the Winelib.
I intended give a talk to students about Wine and possible ways of doing
e.g. a Master's thesis based on Wine, on june 13. The Google stipends are a
very pleasant surprise that might help me in convincing people ;) However,
I think as the Summer of Code applications must be made before june 14,
I'll try to move that to next monday (june 6).
For that purpose, I'd be very happy if you could help us in brainstorming
and coming up with some ideas for cool projects. I'd present some of those
ideas on monday, too, and I'll advertise all Wine-based candidates for the
SOC at my faculty.
I have created a Wiki page at http://wiki.winehq.org/WineInAcademics that
describes what kind of work would make good projects here - "Studienarbeit"
and "Diplomarbeit" don't seem to have very good equivalents in the US
system. However, a Diplomarbeit corresponds approximately to a Master's
thesis, and I think almost all projects that fit into the Summer of Code
would make at least a nice Studienarbeit, or maybe even serve as a good
basis for a Diplomarbeit.

That's great! I've taken myself the liberty of creating a Wiki page for
project proposals, in order to make it easier to keep track of them. Volia:

Sounds good to me. Maybe it would be wise to first collect many ideas, and
then make a selection for the SOC. Projects that are not selected might
make a good base for other academic works or similar things, so I would be
sad to see good ideas lost, even if they don't fit perfectly.
