    55==== Filesystems: general improvements ====
     
    124124==== Updating AbiWord ====

    126     Even though an [http://www.abisource.com/ older AbiWord port] is being hosted at [http://dev.osdrawer.net OSDrawer : AbiWord Project Page], the AbiWord project would prefer the port to use their current sources. The student is responsible for determining which aspects of this project to persue.
     126    Even though an [http://www.abisource.com/ older AbiWord port] is being hosted at [http://dev.osdrawer.net OSDrawer : AbiWord Project Page (2.0)], the AbiWord project would prefer the port to use their current sources (2.8.x).  The student is responsible for determining which aspects of this project to persue.  AbiWord/AbiSource has participated in past GSoCs and we expect that they will again this year.  This could be a possible cross project with a co-mentor from each org, so if interested in this one you may want to apply to both orgs.

     128==== Update Haiku support in SDL 1.3 ====
     129   
     130    SDL 1.2 branch works on Haiku, but is a bit buggy still.  The new development is now focused on 1.3, which does not yet have native Haiku support.  Since the code in the 1.2 branch is so buggy, this may need a complete rewrite.
     131
     132==== Add Haiku support to Allegro 5.0 ====
     133   
     134    Allegro is a gaming library, it has support for BeOS/Zeta/Haiku in the 4.4 branch, but they dropped BeOS from the 5.x branch.  Now that Haiku is in a usable state it would be nice to get the latest builds of Allegro 5.0 working on Haiku.  It's still unclear if Allegro will be applying for GSoC but they do have a developer who'd be willing to co-mentor this with a Haiku mentor.
