It's time again for Google Summer of Code, so we need to start updating
the X.Org ideas page (http://www.x.org/wiki/SummerOfCodeIdeas) with new
ideas.  Since there have been a few issues with the wikis lately, if you
have any ideas please respond to this thread, and I will make sure they
get onto the official ideas page (but still feel free to update the wiki
page yourself if you can).  A good project description should contain:

- A brief description of the project
- A difficulty rating (e.g. easy, medium, hard)
- The skills / programming languages required

Also, I am going to purge all the old ideas from the ideas page in the
next week, so if there are any of the old ideas that you think are
still relevant, let me know and I will keep it.

The ideas page is used as one of the criteria by Google for selecting
mentoring organizations and part of the reason X.Org was not selected
last year was that the ideas page was not up to par, so if we want to
participate in Google Summer of Code this year, it is important we
have a good ideas page with lots of ideas.
