Indeed, I don't want Octave to appear unwelcoming. There are loads of projects available, and a mentor can almost always be found if someone shows a specific interest in a task. Besides the GSoC projects, there is also Octave's general list of projects (http://wiki.octave.org/Projects). Edmund mentioned some other possibilities besides intense algorithm work. I think creating a new Property Editor (I wrote the write-up for that on the GSoC page) could be a good one. That would involve Qt graphics programming. That said, most things in Octave require knowledge of either C++ or the m-file language. Fortran, C, and Perl are used in very small doses and all of that code is basically in maintenance mode rather than new development.
