I was thinking about doing a proposal for Google Summer of Code and Krita 
seemed like a nice project to work on =)
I would have liked to propose for the sumi-e brush engine, but as I understand 
it there is already somebody who is interested in that.

The sketch-pad also seems interesting. But I would appreciate if somebody 
explained the idea a little more in depth. What should a tracing paper 
interface be like? Is it supposed to be free hand only?? Maybe also geometric 
tools would be usefull.. but I'm not sure what the idea exactly is. Should it 
be used with a tablet? Because than I haven't got any. On the other hand if I 
get accepted for SoC I could maybe buy a cheap one for my room-mate, who 
draws a lot, in exchange for helping me testing the feature.

Another program that I would love to work on is karbon, it still lacks a lot 
of features compared to, say, inkscape. Only I can't think of any that would 
make a nice SoC project, if anybody has any idea..

Now that I think of it, maybe the sketch-pad could be based on vector 
graphics, what do you think, would it be feasible? And would the architecture 
of karbon allow it?

Well... let me know!
