As in the past years the Eclipse Foundation will participate in the Google Summer of Code 2016 event. Since Package Drone is an Eclipse project now, we are allowed to submit ideas as well.

So if you have ideas or would like participate as a student look up Google Summer of Code 2016 Ideas in the Eclipse Wiki and write down your idea. Or simply raise an issue at GitHub and I will do this for you.

For a start I came up with two ideas:

But of course there are many more things to do!

If you need help you can also write on the mailing list.

    I am Cynthia Tekwe and I would love to work on creating the REST API during the upcoming Google Summer of code. I am familiar with HTTP protocol and proficient in C/C++, Java, python and JS.
    I wish to get directions on where to get started. Thanks

      Hello Cynthia,

      The best way to peek into the project is to follow the contributor guide for setting up the Package Drone development environment. Get Package Drone up and running in the IDE and play a little bit around with it. If you feel confident, let me know how you would like to approach the task.

      If you need more information it is best to follow the contacts page. But you can also contact me directly.

    This is Shashank from International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore, India. I would like to work on the project regarding REST API.
    Just a background, I have been working on REST API for my project. I have learned the best practices for making completely RESTful application with Jersey(JAX-RS). I think I can do my best, if I can get to know more details about the project. I can even program the client side of REST APIs both in android and webapp(Sprong Framework). I used to send and receive JSON responses for the REST part. I want to contribute as GSOC2016.
