Dear libvirt, KVM, and QEMU contributors,
The Google Summer of Code season begins soon and it's time to collect
our thoughts for mentoring students this summer working full-time on
libvirt, KVM, and QEMU.

What is GSoC?
Google Summer of Code 2015 (GSoC) funds students to
work on open source projects for 12 weeks over the summer.  Open
source organizations apply to participate and those accepted receive
funding for one or more students.

We now need to collect a list of project ideas on our wiki.  We also
need mentors to volunteer.


Project ideas
Please post project ideas on the wiki page below.  Project ideas
should be suitable as a 12-week project that a student fluent in
C/Python/etc can complete.  No prior knowledge of QEMU/KVM/libvirt
internals can be assumed.


Please add your name to project ideas you are willing to mentor.  In
order to mentor you must be an established contributor (regularly
contribute patches).  You must be willing to spend about 5 hours per
week from May 25 to August 21.

I have CCed the 8 most active committers since QEMU 2.1.0 as well as
the previous libvirt and KVM mentors but everyone is invited.
