Summer of Code

It is now official, I have been selected to participate in the Google Summer of Code. I will be working on F-Spot, a photo management application. My mentor will be Stephane Delcroix, who is already trying to trick me into bringing him breakfast.

The last few years I was occasionally involved both in F-Spot and Banshee. Now that Banshee is totally rocktastic, it’s time to make F-Spot shine.


I will be working on the Sidebar, most specifically integrating editing tools. You can read my proposal over here. This is based on Jimmac’s awesome mockups.

Now here’s your chance to add your pet peeve: I’d like to invite everybody to let me know of their favorite features which should come in the sidebar. I’ll stick to my proposal for the coming summer, but I’d love to know what people are really waiting for. So e-mail me or comment with those suggestions, if they’re really good, I might even squeeze them in!
