==Ideas for Google Summer of Code 2013=====Indic rendering support in ConTeXt.===
ConTeXt is another TeX macro system similar to LaTeX but much more suitable for design. (We already have rendering module
in SILPA this can be improved to allow the implementation of above idea. )

===Automated Rendering Testing======Silpa Related======= Port remaining modules to the new flask based Silpa ====
'''Project''':
'''Mentor''' : Rajeeesh Nambiar
==== Provide REST API for new flask based Silpa, including conversion of templates to this REST API from JSON RPC.====
'''Project''':
'''Mentor''' :
==== Separate templates from SILPA and have it inside modules packaged for pypi ====
'''Project''':
'''Mentor''' :
==== Integrating jquery.ime input method frame work with internationalization using jquery.i18n ====
'''Project''':
(not complex and will be expanded by Santhosh)
'''Mentor''' :
==== Converting indic processing modules currently in SILPA into Jquery library ====
'''Project''':
'''Mentor''' :
==== Improving cross language transliteration system. ====
'''Project''':
'''Mentor''' :
==== A spell checker for Indic language that understands inflections ====
'''Project''':
(Santhosh will explain this)
'''Mentor''' :

=== Android App Ideas- Malayalam Calendar ====* Malayalam Calendar (?)* Full featured Malayalam input tool like [http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.inputmethod.hindi Google Hindi Input].==(?) jquery.ime from wikimedia is getting ready as input method with 150+ input methods for android
===Add proper Indic / Malayalam rendering to Mapnik.===
Mapnik is a free mapping toolkit, written in C++. One of it's major users is OpenStreetMap. If you check OpenStreetMap, you can see that Languages like Russian, Arabic, Persian, Chinese etc are rendered in it (Not sure whether they are properly rendered or not). The lack of proper Indic support is the major reason for the absence of Malayalam.

===Add Indic / Malayalam rendering to MapServer + OpenLayers stack.===
Both are OSGeo projects, and used in most of the WebGIS applications recently. MapServer is an open source development environment for building spatially enabled internet applications. OpenLayers is an open source JavaScript library for displaying map data in web browsers. OpenLayers is used by OpenStreetMap for its "slippy map" map interface.

===Add proper Indic / Malayalam support and rendering to GRASS GIS.===
It is used by a number of organizations for analysing GIS data, creating maps etc. GRASS also is an OSGeo project. It is in the process of rewriting the old Tcl/Tk interface in the new wx-python.
