Can we propose projects to integrate free software into Open Education
Resources and thus into curricula? I would be delighted to mentor or
administer such projects, and to coordinate between GSoC projects and
FLOSS Manuals (for software manuals) and Sugar Labs (for Replacing
Textbooks). I have several lined up in math and can come up with
others in a variety of subjects.

I have recently been doing the coding for Algebra: An Algorithmic
Treatment, by Turing Award winner Kenneth E. Iverson. He wrote it for
APL on printing terminals in the early 1970s, and I have translated it
to his last language, J, on Linux, Mac, and Windows.
