Most of our projects need some really in-depth knowledge prior to hacking a smallish task

Looking forward to next year, it would be good for us to encourage projects to have a GSoC
tag in their ticket tracker to identify issues that would be good candidates for students.
The folks at OpenHatch recommend clearly identifying tickets as entry-level, and then,  rather
than always cleaning up the so-called "low-hanging fruit", leaving them for entry-level people.
Such an approach might be employed, say, 3-6 months out from GSoC, to start to identify good
student projects.

Granted, this leaves things undone, but that's probably ok, if our focus is indeed community
over code.
