Re: add KiCad on GSoC this year?


This is the fundamental problem. I'm willing to entertain the idea if someone can commit the time to mentor students. I can tell you that I don't have the time to do this.

I think the problem is someone has to actually step up and mentor a student. You aren't allowed to just give them a topic and disappear ;)

    some reminder for next month: Starting with January 15th, mentoring
    organizations can start submitting applications for the GSoC:


    It would be a nice idea to apply this year, and get some students to
    help with the development of KiCad 6.

    I would suggest to advertise topics which are mostly standalone and
    sound interesting/challenging, and where people currently not working
    on, like: diff/merge tools, improved digital/analog simulation, signal
    integrity, auto-router, improved push-shove,...
