I am also planning to participate...
This will be my first participation in GSoC. However what I am planning to
develop is not listed on Geeklog ideas page...

My mission is to develop 2 plugins for Geeklog and I really believe that
this plugins can be very useful for Geeklog users. Shortly... goal is to
create custom contact plugin and banner managment plugin because in my
oppinion this is something what Geeklog must have.
I will submit detail information about me and of course about things that I
am planning to develop in my project proposal.

I want to here from other Geeklog developers, is this something what can be
GSoC project!? And am I wrong when I say that this are the things that
Geeklog users needs?!
