This requires people to duplicate effort in creating and tracking 
issues. the labels solution worked as it could be done with a bulk 
update of existing JIRA issues.

The infra team suggested we ask projects to create a new component and 
put appropriate issues into that component as well as the the actual 
component it applies to. I think this makes sense and is easier to 
manage than a separate project in JIRA.

However, remember that some projects don't use JIRA. For those projects 
we asked them to add GSOC details to the Comdev JIRA in the "mentor"
