Some of these may be on the "large" side, but
- Provide a full-feature, mostly specification complete python pdf
- Write a proper python package manager that recursively handles
dependencies across platforms (CPAN/apt-get for python).
- Enhance GUI integration. Ie, allow python code targetting one GUI
environment to be used in a different one (contribute to anygui?)
- Add 3D graphics to matplotlib (nudge, nudge, my own project).
- Contribute a full-featured wavelets analysis package for python
- Add internationalization support to your favorite python package
which lacks it.
- Add client side python support to mozilla and/or XUL
- Write a python app that crawls python-list USENET posts looking for
book or GUI-toolkit recommendations and automatically responds with
links to FAQs and google groups. Be sure to include "google is
your friend" in every response.
- Contribute to the ipython rewrite effort so that python finally has
an interactive shell across platforms worth its salt that has a
chance of being included in the standard library.
- Solve the problems with the global interpreter lock and give python
a proper security model that will satisfy everyone with a hardcore
Java and C++ background. Implement a proper Rational class and
support date string formatting over the range of dates that the
datetime module supports. Provide a full featured timezone module
for the standard library. Support compile time type identification
for runtime optimizations.
If any or all of these have already been done, my apologies to the
