This list is not exclusive -- there are many other things that might be good projects, but it might instead be something we already have. Also, some of the following items may not actually be considered good ideas now. So please check with firstname.lastname@example.org before you start working on some large project.
Summer of Code students, please also see [[
SoC Project Ideas]].
If you're looking for small project, something more suited to start getting involved with Octave development or to fill a boring evening, see [[short projects]]
