We should take advantage of this hackathon request. We should do the
same for any opportunity to increase participation!

Since there will be 700+ university participants, there may be a
variety of different skill sets, but we don't know what they are.

Let's make a list of 2 or 3 items, each from a different skill area.

Perhaps:
* 1 "byte size" code quality issue from the issue tracker
* 1 website task
* 1 Py3 support task

Byte size issue tracker task: Some suggestions were already made but
are not a good fit for several reasons. Let's suggest other ones. I'll
go first again: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN-1722 "svn
diff may missreport a revision as the working copy."

Website task: Johan suggests the website overhaul and Julian suggests
a subtask of that. I think that's a good idea. The task I suggest is
to incorporate normalize.css and main.css from html5boilerplate.com
and improve the navigation bar to make the static pages mobile
friendly.

Python 3 support task: I think something Python-related should be on
the list. How about https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN-2079
"utf8_tests.py should be made non-iso8859-1 specific"

Thoughts? Other items we should consider?
