Summer Of Code, start your engines!

Today marks the day that Google Summer Of Code (SoC) starts accepting student applications. For those who are interested in contributing to Mozilla, they have a wiki where you submit your ideas. Desmond had a blast last year doing a Camino project, and we'd love to see a bunch more Camino submissions.

Remember, there's a sweet spot between being over-ambitious and too easy. If it would take me a day of hacking, it's not a good project. If it would take me 6 months of involved coding, it's probably also not a good project. I'd love to see someone sign up to the Tabspose, I've been wanting to do that for years and I think it could easily be done in a Summer.
