LyX 2014 Summer of Code Ideas
If you see an idea here which interests you, please consider contacting the LyX Developer's list. You can send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Instructions on how to subscribe can be found at http://www.lyx.org/MailingLists#lyx_devel.) We would love to discuss any thoughts you might have, or to help you put together a student application.
Publishers and collaborators often request LyX authors to convert their files to Microsoft Word's .docx format. The design differences between a style-oriented format like LyX's and a format-oriented format like .docx make a full-blown "LyX to .docx" (or "LaTeX to .docx") converter unfeasible. The goal of this project is to identify a minimal yet practically useful subset of LyX features that a converter could support. The actucal conversion from LyX to .docx could be implemented by existing multiformat converter (e.g. pandoc) or by a LyX exporter new tool.
