Please post your links to any appropriate GSoC ideas here. If you’re not familiar with GSoC, briefly put it’s an event run by Google wherein they pay students to work on an open source project for 3 months. We participated last year, and will be applying this year as well.
If you have a feature on your wishlist that fits the scope of a 3-month student project, share it here!
If you have an idea that hasn’t been discussed before, please start a new topic about it first and then link to it from here. Feel free to share multiple links in one reply.
I’ll be updating the official doc with your suggestions:
I might be a bit late to the party. I just found out about the GSoC program yesterday and submitted a brief proposal !
I just posted a potential enhancement or plugin that could be built into the composer / editor window. Link the discussion is here.
The gist of the plugin/enhancement is that a user’s post could be pre-flagged and they could be notified that what they are about to post may be toxic and that they should take time to review it. I think the Google Jigsaw team has been working towards developing something like this. @codinghorror linked google’s perspectiveAPI. I haven’t had time to play around with it myself but it looks promising from my initial glance. Maybe a plugin that uses that api?
What are your thoughts/feelings on something like this?
