I have been developing Wineglass independently as an elementaryOS app (https://github.com/aggalex/Wineglass) and I want to expand it and integrate it with wine in a much better way. If possible, could you inform me about wine's GSoC program? Do you believe such a project is suitable for wine and GSoC?

I think I misremembered. It doesn't have to be strictly about Wine,
but it has to be about coding (e.g. documentation or artwork work is
not suitable for GSoC). Otherwise, of course, we have discretion about
what's an acceptable proposal.

Now, I don't think Alex's specific case would apply anyway. AFAIU
Wineglass is their own project and e.g. it would be weird to mentor
that. Feel free to reply if in disagreement though!
