If you are looking for a SoC idea, I have listed a couple below. I am not sure how good of an idea they are but I have ran into the following limitations and probably other people have as well in the past.

1. Can user based priorities be implemented as a summer project? To some extent it has already been implemented in research (http:// www.cs.cmu.edu/~bianca/icde04.pdf), so it is definitely possible and scalable.

2. Distributed full-text indexing. This one I am really not sure how possible it is but (TSearch2) very scalable (cannot do multi terabyte fulltext indexes). Maybe some sort system could be devised to perform fulltext searches over multiple systems and merge the ranked results at some root node.

Students & Professors,

There are only 5 days left to submit your PostgreSQL Google Summer of Code Project:

If you aren't a student, but know a CS student interested in databases, testing, GUIs, or any other OSS coding, please point them to our SoC page and encourage them to apply right away!

If you are a student, and you've been trying to perfect your application, please go ahead and submit it ... we can't help you if you miss the deadline, but we can help you fix an incomplete application.
