Subject Re: Google Summer of Code ideas for Roller?

In regards to #2 

I built a migration framework that will allow users to migrate their data from other blog
softwares. The code is split in the framework and the actual adopter implementation. In my
case I created an adopter class for my own needs that works very well when migrating from
Blojsom (a competitive blog software)

I like the idea of expanding this code.. and I think that is a good google summer code experience
if there is a interesting (from the roller community) in having this working. 

I also like your #3 idea.. :)

One extra idea would be to provide some interface (framework/gui) way to allow more easily
changing the themes stylesheet.

Hey Dave,
Here's my list:
1. OpenID (identity provider and relying party) and perhaps infocard 
support so that roller installations don't necessarily have to be ID 
silos in the absence of any enterprise ID system integration (LDAP, 
yadda yadda)
2. As Sean and Allen said, theme migration is huge, in general data 
migration competitive-upgrade tools would also be slick (in general, a 
tool that uses metaWeblog and APP to smoothly migrate between blogging 
platforms would be a huge contribution to the blogging ecosystem)
3. Small device admin interfaces, Mashable just had nice coverage of 
blogging from your phone ... looked great 
but no roller
