MacPorts is a ports collection and packaging system for OS X. Created in 2002 as DarwinPorts, we have an ever-growing collection of ports (currently over 16500), many of which accept multiple configuration variants. MacPorts itself works on both PowerPC and Intel Macs, running OS X 10.4 through 10.8, and many ports support a similar breadth of systems. As one of the primary means of building and installing open source software on OS X, MacPorts is an important interface between OS X and the rest of the open source world.
This is our 6th participation in Google Summer of Code and we again have some ideas we'd like to see implemented to improve the quality of our packages and the user experience of MacPorts. Take a look at our ideas page to get started and don't hesitate to contact any potential mentors or drop by in IRC.
