Hi all,

I’ve been accepted as a Google Summer of Code 2012 participant to work on the proposed project titled “Support for Gamepad API in WebKitGTK+ and general gamepad configuration options in System Settings” (abstract on google-melange.com). The wiki page for the project will be located here. The project will cover three notable additions to GNOME-related projects:

  • Gamepad API specification support for the GTK+ port of the WebKit rendering engine
  • Gaming devices panel in the GNOME Control Center for advanced gamepad and joystick configuration
  • Plugin in GNOME Settings Daemon to load configuration for previously configured devices when they’re connected

My mentor will be Carlos Garcia Campos.

Looking forward to a productive summer!
