  Well! i would be more than happy to mentor any of the following
projects if someone student wan to work on them as his Google SoC

1. N800 as a webcam device: I already recommended this idea on this
list earlier for anyone looking for some n800 related project to work
on. This would ideally involve a user-space streaming application on
the device and a  v4l2 device driver on the PC. Now that everyone
knows there is FM radio capability on the device, the v4l2 driver
could also provide that capability on the PC.

2. GOD (Gstreamer On-Demand): Remote Gstreamer pipeline/element
creation and manipulation. This project would also provider wrapper
lib to create distributed gstreamer pipelines. For details on this
idea, please refer to my blog starting from 15 Oct 2006
(http://www.advogato.org/person/zeenix/diary.html?start=96). Although
this project is not directly related to maemo/n800 but i am quite
sure, n800 can be the biggest beneficiary of this project.

So if anyone interested, please apply to SoC and let me know. :)
