IDLE needs lots of attention -- more than any one experienced person is likely to have
I'm willing to step up as a student for this but I still have to write a good proposal for it. My actual concern is about mentor availability, is someone around interested on being an IDLE mentor ?
You might want to talk to Bruce Sherwood, as VPython suffered through a bunch of Idle problems. I got the impression he had a person or two who were his Idle experts (so I am thinking they might be the mentors you are looking for). In any case, even a charter of "unit tests to 50% coverage" of Idle would be a huge improvement.
I've run after specific bugs in Idle, but don't really know the lay of the land.
