As student application period of Google Summer of Code 2013 is over, it's time to look at proposals we got for phpMyAdmin.
First of all we got slightly less proposals than in past years. This is probably related to the fact that we still heavily focus on code cleanup this year and this is definitely not that interesting topic as adding new features. I think quality has also slightly improved and this time we received no bogus or spam proposals.
Also as usual, people tend to leave submission for very last date (though not that much as in past years):
Quite unsurprisingly the most interesting topic seemed to be interface improvements, though it is quite wide. You can see how other topics were frequent in following chart:
Please note that the numbers are not 100% accurate as some proposals really did not fit into above categories.
Anyway we're just working on evaluation and will finalize it in upcoming days. Of course you will know the results from Google on May 27th.
