As last year, I'm interested in mentoring for GIL during this edition.
I don't have any specific projects on the plate, but there is still
plenty to do as continuation of Miral Shah's project adding
image processing algorithms:
We have a list of wishes and ideas for GIL
that may serve interested students as an inspiration
(e.g. color management is an interesting area).
I personally prefer when a student approaches with
a project proposal she/he is very keen to develop
or at least approaches with an idea and works out
project details with prospect mentor(s).
I consider coming up with an idea or project as an initial homework
filtering genuine interest in solving a particular problem
rather than piggybacking Boost & GSoC to improve CV.
