Not sure if this is a full GSoC but it would be good to get the benchmarks into the numpy repository, so we can start asking people who submit optimizations to submit new benchmarks as part of the PR (just like other changes require tests).

we already have decent set of benchmarks in yaroslavs setup:

Are you suggesting that we <del>steal</del> copy those (my thought), or that we don't need a project? I note that Pauli is using Air Speed Velocity instead of vbench.
