Based on your introduction, there are several GIMP related projects you could
work on. In regards to the Python related project, the main person to speak is
I am interested in your work with Scheme as my main involvement with GIMP
revolves around Script-Fu and its script files. The use of DrScheme to provide
a better way to interact with GIMP while developing or debugging scripts is
interesting. Another possible GSoC project would be enhancing the Script-Fu
console to make it easier to test and debug scripts.
In terms of priorities, a unified scripting interface would most likely be
given a higher priority than an improved Script-Fu interface. However, project
selection is based on the votes the student proposals receive. If you are
selected for a project involving Script-Fu or Scheme I will most likely be
selected as your mentor.
In preparing to start on a GIMP related project there are several things you
can do. You should join the GIMP developer mailing list, introduce yourself on
the #gimp IRC channel, and set up a build environment on your computer so you
can compile GIMP from source. You should also have a look at
If you have questions about GIMP, or setting up a build environment (it can be
tricky to be sure you have all the needed packages), feel free to ask on the
gimp-devel mailing list or on IRC. For most general questions about GIMP you
can usually get a quick answer on the IRC channel. Most of the active GIMP
developers can be found on the IRC channel at varying times throughout the day.
