Since LXDE is accepted as a mentoring organization, we’re preparing for the event.
Here are the current idea list and some guides on application for potential participants:

Guides for students: http://wiki.lxde.org/en/Google_Summer_of_Code_-_Student_Check_List
Except the items currently in the idea list, it will even be better if students can have their own proposals for new projects, such as some new components for LXDE. The idea list is just a place for ideas, but students are not constrained by those ideas. Feel free to have your own ideas for LXDE. If you have better ideas, don’t hesitate. Write a proposal now!
Students can submit their applications via the Google Summer of Code 2010 site from March 29 – April 9, 2010. Before submitting your applications, it’s good to discuss in mailing list with us and please read the guides provided in above links first.
Hope that developers/students interested in LXDE development can join us! Let’s make desktop experience smoother together!
