At the last developer call I agreed to lead the GSoC effort.

Based on my prior experience with GSoC (via the BeagleBoard project),
the single most important part of the application is the list of ideas.
We need to start thinking about ideas that are possible for
undergrad/grad type students in a three month period. I also recommend
looking at idea list published by other successful organizations.

The application deadline is March 9. We should aim to be done before
that due to WSR12.
