Hello Houx,

You can make your proposal for one of the other ideas or for any idea 
you want, but the one thing that you want to be aware of is that it is 
really critical to have a mentor interested in picking up applications 
for the project.

Right now Tiago is the only mentor that has come forward, but I am still 
hoping that more will.  By making a proposal for test and fix, you know 
at least there is a mentor looking for a student, but it could be that 
if you proposed something different and could inspire a mentor to be 
interested in that project, you might be an even better position.

Here are some thoughts I had on GSoC this year.
