Information For Mentors and Proposals
CMS or Framework?
Joomla developers are currently working on multiple projects: the Joomla CMS main 3.x Version and the upcoming new major version 4.0 (2019-2020). Additionally there are many side projects related to testing, Docker, core extensions and other things.
The Joomla CMS is the very popular and well known FOSS content management system powering currently around 3-4 % of the internet. The Framework existed within the CMS as a tightly coupled set of utility packages and classes.
The project supports all of these initiatives, as does Google Summer of Code. On our Idea list you will find projects related.
The GSoC 2019 time line is available on the GSoC Site, we suggest you to go through it: GSoC 2019 Timeline
Please check the GSoC Student Application Template to understand what we are expecting from your proposal.
