I added a page to the dojo wiki about Google's Summer of Code:
If Dojo is interested in being a mentoring organization, we need to
provide a "pool of project ideas for students to choose from, publicly
published by the mentoring organization". For each student project, we
need someone who will be a mentor and also a back-up person who can take
over for the mentor if need be.
I've started our wiki page off with a few project ideas and a few names
of people who've expressed interest in mentoring. Please add to the
page if you've got more project ideas or you'd like to volunteer as a
mentor or a back-up mentor.
