Re: Fedora Bounties (seeking ideas)

What about a resurrection of something like cheops? Companies like FlukeNetworks charge big money for a program that maps a network like cheops used to do and it would seem that there are a lot of things that could be added to it to make it a really spectacular program. Things like SNMP polling of switches and routers so that that links between objects could also show traffic stats in near real time.

Source RPMS of the old cheops can be compiled on FC4, but it was really hacky and very prone to crashes. I thinking having a network mapping tool like that for Linux could really be a nice app. I guess it might not be along Fedora's lines though.

Last year, after Fedora applied to participate in Google's Summer of Code 2005, we created the FedoraBounties page on the wiki:


This page features specific ideas for new projects that the Fedora Project would like to see completed. Several of these ideas were selected by students for the Summer of Code event.

Now, Google has just announced the Summer of Code 2006. Although the Fedora Project has not yet applied to participate this year, I suspect we are likely to do so. However, our Fedora Bounties list is now quite short. We need fresh ideas. If there are any projects that you would like to see, please add them to the FedoraBounties page. These can include ideas that you may have had but don't have time to work on, problems that you have encountered that need attention, or tools you really wish we had.

Assuming we do participate in this year's event, we can expect several of the project ideas to be selected again, so this is an excellent opportunity to suggest long-missed projects. Students will be able to apply for this year's event after May 1st, so there isn't much time to get your ideas listed.
