I've put up an incredibly sketchy, terrible ideas page up for Summer of Code with core python:
I'm pretty much the worst person to do this since I'm always swamped with admin stuff and particularly out of touch with what's needed in Core Python around this time of year, so I'm counting on you all to tell me that it's terrible and how to fix it. :)
If you don't already have edit privileges on the python wiki and need them for this, let me know your wiki username and I can get you set up. (Or similarly, just tell me what needs fixing and make it my problem.)
We're also still looking for more volunteers who can help mentor students. Let me know if this interests you -- we have a few folk who can do higher level code reviews, but we need more day-to-day mentors who can help students keep on track and help them figure out who to ask for help if they get stuck. I can also find folk who will provide mentoring for mentors if you'd like to try but don't think you could be a primary mentor without help!
If you're interested in mentoring, email email@example.com and we can get you the link to sign up. And if you emailed before and didn't get a response or haven't found a group to work with, feel free to email again!
