      Description

      Apache Commons is a project that manage a series of independent Java libraries called components.

      Some of the perhaps most well known components include commons-io, commons-lang, commons-collections and commons-cli

      But did you know that Commons is also managing some more specialized components like commons-crypto, commons-numbers, commons-rng and commons-rdf ?

      The potential GSOC student will propose an idea to work with one or more chosen Apache Commons components to churn through any outstanding Jira issues, update for Java 8/9, improve web site, documentation or testing.

      As the appropriate GSOC mentor will depend slightly on which Commons component the student is interested in, prospective students are encouraged to engage early by subscribing and posting to dev@commons using the subject tag [GSOC] and the commons component(s) they are intested in, e.g.

      To: dev@commons.apache.org
      Subject: [GSOC] [Crypto] Potential GSOC idea

      Hi, I am Alice, student at Foo university, and I am interested in GSOC for Apache Commons, in particular Commons Crypto as I have been quite involved in cryptography protocols over the years together with my friend Bob.

      What could be a good chunk of work to get started with? Perhaps adding support for rot13?
