Just a reminder, if you have projects that are suitable for the OPW please
add them to the wiki page or, if you can't access the wiki, send me a
summary and I'll add it.


Prospective participants can start submitting applications on Sep 22 and
it'd be great if we had a nice range of projects available by then.
Note that unlike GSoC, the scope is not limited to coding (see below).
