Well I can always be hit by a bus or anything like that. But I hope it
won't be necessary.

We should come up with a idea list today, because tomorrow Google will
begin accepting applications. I think we should just start with
http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/grub-soc.html and remove the project
I did last summer. I think all the other tasks still need to be
done. New ideas are welcome too of course.

Personally I think one of the important things we have to do is making
GRUB2 a suitable replacement for GRUB Legacy. This means implementing
all the features from GRUB Legacy that GRUB2 doesn't have yet, making
sure that the installer and other tools are all in a good state,
etc. It's a bit difficult to make a task out of that, but IMHO it's
time that GRUB2 gets ready for production use.
