For anyone who completely isn't familiar with this: Google Summer of 
Code is a program where Google pays students to work on open source 
projects for the summer.  The motto goes: "Flip bits, not burgers."
  Google Summer of Code applications are open for mentoring 
organizations, and I've already put in Python's application.  You can 
get more info here:


What I'd like to know is if anyone's got any good ideas for core python 
projects this year and are interested in mentoring.  We always have lots 
of students who'd like to work on Python, but right now we don't have 
any mentors who are available and interested in helping students make 
contributions to the language (We do, however, have mentors for various 
python sub-projects).

Let me know if this might be interesting to you.  I'm happy to answer 
any questions, and I've got experienced mentors who aren't core python 
devs but who'd be willing to pair up so you wouldn't have to go it 
alone, just let me know!


PS - I'm also looking for new sub-projects and other mentors -- just ask 
if you want to take part this year!
