Since it is my first experience with Google Summer of Code I don't know if it could be a suitable project.

 wanted to apply with Grass because I started using it about three 
months ago and I found it very interesting. I thought that it would be 
great if I could contribute in such a good project that have helped me 
so many times.

So I went trough the ideas page and I choosed the 
project about OpenMP because I haven't got good knowlodge about spatial 
data and it seemed to me that it was much related with Computer Science 

Which one could be a suitable project instead of OpenMP? Consider that I'm a beginner with GIS. 

Thank you,

 I have used C-CUDA so maybe it could be interesting to make some 
modules running on GPU and to compare the performances. Maybe it should 
be done for r.mapcalc? Or it doesn't make sense?
