May I suggest you post any resulting idea(s) for students to consider
for Google Summer of Code? (We're applying by this Friday, so sooner
the better.)


An idea can be e.g. getting tools packaged, dealing with dependencies,
pushing patches to the upstream, and tying it all together neatly for
the spin. If it's a large workload for one student over the summer,
split it up in to two or more ideas.

You don't have to be an expert in the technologies involved, you just
have to be good at connecting your student to people and resources to
get things done.

You might be able to find a co-mentor who has the knowledge to create
your ideas but doesn't have the time, so can have the students get
things moving along or completed.

If Fedora gets a GSoC slot, then any energy you put in before the
student proposal deadline to publicizing the ideas (e.g. to Stanford
students ;D ) increases the quantity and quality of student applications.
