Can I propose my own Idea?


I have an idea and would to create a proposal for the same. But I want to be a mentee and work on this idea. Is it possible?

For GSoC, no. These ideas are driven by mentors.

For general improvement, yes.


@Onyx2406 yes you can. but you'd have to find a mentor and get some consensus that it's a good idea for it to get accepted. But it's not like the current suggestion list are the only source of good ideas.

This is a theoretical approach which is not going to work in reality. As @stevepiercy said: project ideas will always come from mentors.

well, there is no rule as such in GSoC policy but if it is plone's rule then fine!

It's not the Plone, it's my understanding of how GSOC works.
As a GSOC mentor, I would reject any try to add proposals as my own coming from aspirants.
That's how it works.
