Please send a mail to webmasters AT gnustep.org with your wiki login name so that you can get write privileges.

Done, thanks :)

Also, please try to make sure any ideas are something that could easily get done by a student in a summer (so, perhaps, it is something you could do in a month of work).

Then I have to forget half of my ideas : in most case I'm not sure of anything. Some ports might look easy (small apps), but will involve a lot of CF conversion. I agree : some of my suggested projects might be huge for one student. But for 2 ? And I could keep on the work when the summer will gone for some of these projects in which I'm interested.

I'm sure nobody could port OpenOffice in a summer. But this project might lead to some CoreFoundation compatible functions :)
Porting WebKit would also be a huge task.

Should I leave some of my ideas ? OpenOffice ? Gecko ?

Also, I hope to concentrate on ideas that would get us towards a GNUstep 1.0 release faster (i.e. fixing up the rough edges).

I work on GNUstep since months and I only start to (mis)understand some small parts. Students might be smarter than I'm, but nobody is very efficient in debugging/enhancing an unknown program.
Well, I'm not :\
