Just FYI: I've linked Mailman from the PSF GSoC 2013 page here:


I don't know that it'll result in us attracting more students just yet 
(again, org applications don't open 'till March 18th) but if it seems 
like there's a small surge after this weekend, you can blame me.  GSoC's 
running on a much later schedule this year than last, so we've got a lot 
of anxious students worrying about deadlines even though it's pretty 
early by the schedule.

I've also updated our GSoC page with a few more ideas from my mental 
Postorius queue:


I'd particularly like to see some more hyperkitty ideas up -- Aurelien, 
are you able to mentor a student this summer?  Anyone else working on 
hyperkitty who'd like to chime in?  Pipermail has been a weakness for a 
while so I expect there'll be students who are really interested in 
improving it if we give them some starting points.

Those of you coming to the sprints can expect me to harass you for 
ideas/refinement at PyCon next week, of course.  But if you, like me, 
are going through bug queues right now trying to prepare for pycon and 
figure out what to work on at the sprints... now's a great time to make 
a list of "I don't think we'll get to this"  features to put up as 
potential GSoC projects!
