Hi all,

I'm currently working on our GSoC mentoring organization application.

Part of that process is providing an ideas list.

To form the ideas list I've invited our user community to post their
wishes to this thread


I've summarized the results thus far here


and have marked things that were a priority for a lot of people with *****

Mentors (any core coder/previous years mentors/most folks who have
commit rights qualify) - if you would be willing to scan through the
list it would be good to make note of

1) stuff that should likely be done only by a core developer - ie add
- Core Only
2) stuff on your todo list that you would like others not to touch -
ie add - Brecht todo
3) stuff that you would be willing to mentor if it is selected and
would be willing to answer questions from potential gsoc applicants on
- ie add - Campbell mentor (note that it is preferable to have
multiple potential mentors for each, so even if someone else has their
name by it, please add yours too if you are interested :) )

i realise that many things on the list are too small to be a complete
gsoc project but we can often aggregate a bunch of small todos into a
larger gsoc project

Also core developers please feel free to add your own ideas that you
would enjoy mentoring or projects that you would like a student to
help you on.

Those items that have a potential mentor by them I will move to the
official ideas list.
