Google Summer of Code 2009

If you are student and looking for a Google Summer of Code project, Red Hat has been accepted as mentoring organization.
I've proposed one project so far, it is the same that has been proposed last year by Julien.

The project is a "web clipping framework" to create a portlet that would enable any web application to be run inside a portal. Simple web clipping portlets are easy to create but smart, customizable and fast ones are challenging. Unfortunately as of today opensource solutions haven't really beat the pricey proprietary solutions out there.

Let me know if this is of interest to you.

If you think of any other project you would like to propose and work on, I would love to hear from you !

The PortletBridge project only handles JSF, Seam and Richfaces (but does it well ;))
