Hi Gerard,
Thanks for your reply! I was thinking about contribution connected with the new DAGs UI or
preparing REST API for Command Line Interface. These topics seems to be reasonable for GSoC
(probably not 100% of these tasks can be completed in three/four months but maybe some parts/tasks?).

I'll ask for more information on Gitter or in another email :)
