*laugh* Stephen, maybe I should have mentioned that I'm *also* a GSoC
mentor (and one of several org admins) for Systers, and we are indeed
doing some Mailman related projects this year.

For the most part, I've kept the suggested projects separate on the
respective GSoC 2012 projects page. Systers is the obvious candidate
for some Mailman 3 related projects, specifically dynamic sublists
(which was invented for Systers and I hope to have replace topics in
Mailman 3) and some usability work I'd like done on the admin interface
(Systers has an experienced usability expert on our mentoring team who's
agreed to help if we can find the right student). And of course,
Systers still has wishlists for their current custom install which is
based on Mailman 2.1.10 and other organizational projects.

There's a bit of a grey area where students could put in a submission
under either Systers or Mailman, though. Archives work, for example,
could probably go with either. I'm pretty much waiting to see and
hoping we've got enough mentors to go around.
