LyX has been accepted as a mentoring organization in Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2013. Each summer, since 2005, Google awards stipends to students who successfully completed a free and open-source coding project during that summer - that's why the name, which was drawn from the 1967 Summer of Love.
In 2012, each stipend was 5,000 USD for the student and 500 USD for the mentoring organization, there were 180 projects and 1.212 stipends, 88% were successful. In 2013, 177 open source projects and organizations will take part.
That's a great opportunity to push the development of LyX. Developers can contribute new features while getting financial support during that time.
LyX combines the power of LaTeX with the comfort of a graphical interface. It lowers the barrier to enter the LaTeX world, and can speed up writing, depending on document type and way of writing, of course.
There are already some ideas for projects:
Do you have any idea for improving LyX? Is there any feature you miss? It would be great if you would send it to the lyx-devel mailing list, or simply write a comment below - we will take care that the developers will get this comments.
