While Google has not announced plans for Google Summer of Code 2011, here are some initial ideas.
== <idea 1> ==
* Filesystems: general improvements
* ReiserFS: write support
* Ext: Ext4 features
* BTRFS, UFS2, ZFS: Read (& Write) support
== <idea 2> ==
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.
* USB 3.0 support
* XHCI implementation
Haiku has already some support for UHCI, OHCI and EHCI.
Requirements: acquiring a PCI-e USB 3.0 board (30$).
* USB Video (UVC)
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.
Requirements: owning an UVC webcam.
* AV/1394 support
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.
Skill set: kernel development, API design, general C/C++, userland development
Requirements: a DV camera, a machine with a Firewire port.
