Hi David, checked over this list (a while back and again just now for
recent suggestions), to see if any should be included in our wiki.
But think practically none of them are very good for GSOC projects.
Either they're very small/specific changes to behavior in
functionality, which we better do as a part of regular development.
Others are just big projects which more experienced devs should work on.
Though I can't speak for module owners in all areas, it's disputable
if we would even accept some of these suggestions. (don't fit well
with Blender's existing design).
An experienced GSOC student need not be limited by our suggested
though its worth asking first to see if your project would be rejected
based on functionality alone.
