So, outside there is the sun (well, not right now :-)), the temperature 
is getting warmer and it's already time to think again about summer of 
code :-).

First of all, I don't know who and how many signed up as a mentors: if 
the PyPy project needs more, I'm available to sign up as a mentor as well.

Next, I'm also considering the possibility of applying as a student 
again: the PhD grant I will receive from 1st of April is very low, so I 
  will likely look for an additional job, and it would be great if the 
job were pypy-related instead of one of those boring projects I used to 
do before :-).

But before applying I want to be sure not to be unfair, because my PhD 
is also about PyPy and I don't want to be paid twice for the same work: 
so my idea would be to do something unrelated to gencli&Co., just to be 
sure it's something that does not fit in my PhD program.

Moreover, I will be well-disposed to withdraw my application if there 
are many others interesting pypy proposals, because I would not want to 
steal someone else the opportunity of doing such as great experience and 
to be involved in the project.

What do you think about it? As I said I basically worry to be judged 
unfair, so I would like to know the opinions of other developers before 
begin thinking of a proposal (and in that case I guess that #pypy is 
much more convenient for discussing it :-)).

ciao Anto
