    v28 v29  
    22While Google has not announced plans for Google Summer of Code 2011, here are some initial ideas.
    33
    4  == <idea 1> ==
     4    * Filesystems: general improvements
     5        * ReiserFS: write support
     6        * Ext: Ext4 features
     7        * BTRFS, UFS2, ZFS: Read (& Write) support
    58
    6  == <idea 2> ==
     9    Haiku has great support for its own filesystem, but most others are only available read-only, or not at all. It is way better for interoperability with other systems to be able to read and write to these disks.

     11    * USB 3.0 support
     12        * XHCI implementation
     13        Haiku has already some support for UHCI, OHCI and EHCI.
     14       
     15        Requirements: acquiring a PCI-e USB 3.0 board (30$).
     16
     17    * USB Video (UVC)
     18        This driver will support higher end webcams and other devices. This should be designed with portability to other OSes, which encourages the re-use of coding efforts for both Haiku and non-Haiku operating systems.
     19       
     20        Requirements: owning an UVC webcam.
     21
     22    * AV/1394 support
     23   
     24    Our Firewire stack supports DV receiving, but not controlling the A/V device (ie play/stop). This requires to modify the Firewire stack for FCP frame support. See AV/C Digital Interface Command Set General Specification for reference.
     25   
     26        Skill set: kernel development, API design, general C/C++, userland development
     27   
     28        Requirements: a DV camera, a machine with a Firewire port.
