Hi Matthew. I'm sorry for the delay in responding; I always fall so far
behind email during Pycon.

Not at all. mailman-developers is exactly the right place to discuss GSoC.
We've had some discussions off-line about the program and how we'll mentor it,
and it's time to start bring those discussions public.
Working on the Django web ui is definitely a core task for GSoC this year.
Last year Anna did some great work on it, and I think we're in a great
position to finish this up, and do more real-world testing with the REST API
in the engine.
In the next few days I should be filling out a wiki page on wiki.list.org for
our 2011 GSoC participation, which will be under PSF sponsorship. I'd be very
happy for you to participate. I registered as a mentor just this morning, and
I know Florian will mentor again this year too. You're welcome to email here
or ping me on irc.freenode.net #mailman.
I'll send a follow up when the wiki page is up and running. It'll be linked
to from the Python GSoC page.
