OpenICC is a Freedesktop project that brings together just about everyone 
who is interested in color for free software applications. That's: 
ArgyllCMS, CinePaint, Cups, GraphicsMagick, Gimp, Gutenprint, ImageMagick, 
Inkscape, Krita, karbon, LittleCMS, LPROF, Scribus and Oyranos. And, of 
course, what's happening here has influence on the the Linux desktops.
Organisation:  http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/OpenIcc

This year OpenICC has been selected again as one of the projects that can 
participate in the Google Summer of Code!
Programm:  http://code.google.com/soc/2008/

Hot topics for this year are the integration of a colour management system 
into low level services, like Xorg and Cairo, HDR colour management, 
hardware accelerated colour conversions, true multiple monitor support, 
again Tonemapping and a toolkit independent GUI layer for plug-ins and 
CMM's. Of course we are happy about continuing and improving our existing 
applications, libraries and all being mentored by experienced developers.
Project Ideas:  http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/OpenIccForGoogleSoC2008

The project ideas range from very simple "get familiar with open source" 
style projects to advanced topics. Given they are all cross platform, they 
have potential to influence colour management not only on Linux. 
Own colour project ideas, ideally with a mentor in mind, are welcome too.
With students entering this round, we hope to get closer to a colour 
managed desktop with fun. Students can submitt project offers until 31. 
march 2008 and earn 4500 USD for their sucessful project.

kind regards

PS: I hope the colour stuff involved is ok for this list.
