Join GNU Guix for GSoC

Item posted by Ludovic Courtès <civodul> on Tue 08 Mar 2016 04:10:18 PM UTC.

This year again the GNU Project is a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code (GSoC), and Guix is participating under GNU’s umbrella.

We have collected project ideas for Guix, GuixSD, and the GNU Shepherd covering a wide range of topics.  If you are passionate about computing freedom, Scheme, functional programming, or operating system development, check out the proposed projects.  The list is far from exhaustive, so feel free to bring your own!

Get in touch with us on the mailing lists or #guix on the Freenode IRC network.

If you are an eligible student, make sure to apply by March 25th.

About GNU Guix

GNU Guix is a functional package manager for the GNU system.  The Guix System Distribution or GuixSD is an advanced distribution of the GNU system that relies on GNU Guix and respects the user's freedom.

In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, per-user profiles, and garbage collection.  Guix uses low-level mechanisms from the Nix package manager, except that packages are defined as native Guile modules, using extensions to the Scheme language.  GuixSD offers a declarative approach to operating system configuration management, and is highly customizable and hackable.

GuixSD can be used on an i686 or x86_64 machine.  It is also possible to use Guix on top of an already installed GNU/Linux system, including on mips64el and armv7.
