Yes!  I suggested on IRC that we should do the IPFS project as part of
Outreachy to encourage implementation of the missing pieces.

Yes.  The idea is that there will be a large number of proposals but
only enough funding for one or two interns.  IIRC internship candidates
then pick a project they’d like to work on and eventually we decide
together with the mentors whom to accept for the internships.  So it
could be that there will only be one suitable internship candidate who
picked another project — in that case the IPFS project would not go
forward as an Outreachy internship.  If we’re lucky, though, we’ll get
enough suitable candidates so that all proposed projects can go forward.
