Hmm, I'm getting a timeout when I try to access
http://wiki.apache.org/general/SummerOfCode2005.  But once it's up, anyone
can edit it: you just need to register for a wiki account if you don't have
one already, then login to wiki, and an Edit button will appear on the page.

There's no such document.  After the initial volunteer call on
members@apache, we've had discussions among the volunteers.  Another
(public) email will shortly go out on community@apache asking for guidelines
and ideas.  Meanwhile, I'll forward you privately a couple of the discussion
emails.

Basically, it's up to each project to find something that's both a
meaningful unit of work of benefit to the project, and something interesting
for a newcomer to work on.

The intent is for it to work like a new contributor (so somewhat similar to
a piece of code out of thin air), only with a committer guiding the student
along, making sure there are unit tests, etc.

Yeah, the pay is good (for the student ;))
