What is SoC?
SoC is the Google Summer of Code, in which Google offers stipends to student developer for working in open source projects.
The mentoring organization for the Nouveau project is X.org, see X.org's SoC page.
Google Summer of Code has a FAQ which is a good source of general information and how to apply.
We are in a hurry!
If you think you might be up for the task, come to talk to us in IRC, freenode channel #nouveau, immediately.
You do not have to have experience in driver programming. Solid experience in programming will do just fine, you will pick up with driver writing fairly fast.
Here is a list of SoC ideas, by no means complete :
- cold POST support: We're still missing memory size computation for NV04-NV30 cards. This is needed for multicard on these cards.
- TV-Out for NV50 If you have other ideas: Talk to us, we are all ears. But please hurry!
