There is a confirmed list of 190 sponsor organizations, including PSF.
50 include 'python' in their tags.

PSF acts as an umbrella organization for multiple Python projects
Core Python is the first listed of about 15.

core-mentorship is listed as the list for core Python GSOC projects. The 
core Python ideas page is
Email (R. David Murray, Antoine Pitrou) and Idle (me, Tal Einat) are the 
two project areas lists.

According to the GSOC timeline
this is an 'Interim Period' and 'Would-be students discuss project ideas 
with potential mentoring organizations.'

Our intention is that GSOC students be a part of the core development 
community in that their code should be posted and reviewed on the 
tracker and hopefully committed, just as with any other new developer on 
the list.
