Hi! I suppose, someone knows about google code in, it is like GSoC :) Does anyone want to participate like mentor in this program?
https://developers.google.com/open-source/gci/
It is more complicated task to mentor on Code-in than GSoC. Only 14 organizations were selected last year.

I don't think we can find easy enough tasks for this program.

Most likely you're right :)
However, If there are a lot of enthusiasts, I will try to help with something, despite the fact that I am a newbie :)

An idea is to write KolibriOS FAQ or user guide. Students are trying to use kolibri, ask developers and describe their steps in small tutorials/howtos in markdown/txt. As a result we will get at least comprehensive FAQ to refer newbies to.

Possible FAQ entries:
  • How to play movies;
  • How to change desktop background;
  • How to save background after reboot;
  • How to start an application at boot;
  • How to switch keyboard layouts;
  • How to configure mouse;
  • How to configure panel;
  • How to change screensaver;
  • How to disable screensaver.

It makes sense to create feature support matrix. Does KolibriOS support
  • mp3;
  • wifi;
  • touchscreen;
  • unicode;
  • windows drivers;
  • linux drivers?

dunkaist, Nice idea, the feature support matrix is really cool :) Some kolibriOS libraries have poor documentation, and schoolers may do examples of using them :)

I think the ext2 drivers,for Kolibri were written by a school studemt as well, so we should qtleast try to get some ideas out there to keep the ball rolling. If required, we can also let them decide if they want to work on parts of the idea and do that instead.
