As part of our application for Google Summer of Code 2012 application,

we ought to create a good-looking suggestion page for students that
says what projects are good for students and who might mentor them:

I am hoping enough people are interested in (1) proposing students
projects and (2) *mentoring* them. The time commitment for mentoring
isn't huge. Perhaps 5 hours a week on average, 10 hours at most. Last
year the mentoring workload was distributed in the maintainers'
mailing list, and there's no reason why this can't happen again. So
please don't be shy about offering mentorship. Unlike student work,
mentoring is unpaid, so naturally we can't demand a fulltime com

Note that I think we should also consider Octave-Forge projects.
Please add Octave-Forge projects to the wiki as you deem appropriate.

If you are interested in mentoring, please write your name in the
appopriate location in the ideas page of the wiki.

Also, feel free to mercilessly edit the application page. I am
currently looking for a backup organisation administrator. Of course I
volunteer to do this right now, and I don't foresee needing a backup,
but this is what an administrator does:

I think the Ocave community could benefit a lot from GSoC. Please
consider helping with this effort.
