There already has been official announcement for this years GSoC at phpMyAdmin and it's time to share my bits. First of all more details about chosen projects are available on our wiki (missing bits will get updated soon).
This year I'll be mentoring again three students. As usual, it was quite tough job to choose students and I hope we've chosen really good ones. Anyway we'll see this later during there summer :-).
As we're currently on a (long) way to phpMyAdmin 4.0, basically all projects are somehow about cleanup and refactoring of quite historical code which lives in some dark places of phpMyAdmin. The only big difference is automated testing project, which is purely about writing new test cases and making tests cover more functionality.
Anyway I'm looking forward to see first improvements from my students - Alex Marin, Yasitha Pandithawatta and Chanaka Indrajith.
