We'd love additional fleshed-out contributions for that. Since we had a little confusion on this last year, please note that we're looking specifically for well-developed ideas that would be good summer-sized projects for new contributors, from folks willing to mentor those projects (rather than "it'd be neat if someone would do X"); see the existing ideas page for examples (some of which are more developed than others, certainly!).

> We've got an overview page[2], and all the program details are on Google's GSoC page[3], and  you might be interested in the program timeline[4] in particular.

> One other note, for those of you who're familiar with the program, there are a few notable changes, which Google goes into in a post[5] about them. In brief, though:

While pdffs project that was proposed last year didn't
get accepted, the student that proposed it still made a
lot of progress, and now that code can fully extract
text from PDFs.

It may be worth trying to carry that forward.
