Project Ideas for Google's Season of Docs


The X.Org Project provides an open source implementation of the X Window System, and works with the community. There are many graphics-related projects that fall under the X.Org/ umbrella. A full list of the projects can be found here.


Here are a list of projects proposed by X.Org developers. If you have ideas of your own, please post them on the relevant mailing lists.

Documentation overhaul

  • Difficulty: Medium
  • Skills Required: Documentation formats and tools (doxygen, XSLT, Markdown, etc.)
  • Useful skills: Batch text editing, C programming for test programs
  • Hardware/Software required: Anything that can build will work
  • Where to ask questions: #xorg-devel,, gitlab issues
  • Description: X's documentation needs help. It's incomplete, unevenly edited, too hard to find, in too many formats, and on and on. Refer to the gitlab issues link above, pick a task, finish it, then pick another one and repeat.
