Hi All,

This is a friendly reminder for GSoC applicants that are interested in  
LLVM/clang.  The deadline for applications is March 31: don't  
forget.  :)

For clang, there are a number of improvements that would be  
interesting.  We have one application already that will be pushing C++  
class parsing forward (from Algiris).  It would be great to see  
various projects that apply clang technology to new areas.  Some  
random ideas:

1. A simple command to do refactorings on C code.  Things like "rename  
definition", extract as function, etc etc.
2. A distcc tool that scales better than the original.
3. A 'doxygen' like tool which uses the new HTML emitter to generate  
indexed output like doxygen or LXR.
4. A 'cscope' like tool for indexing a program or jumping rapidly to  
5. A source code reformating tool.  This would use the rewriter to do  
'indent' like operations, the tricky part is keeping formatting  

If you are a student and interested in tackling any of these or other  
related projects, please consider submitting a proposal.
