Additionally, if you happen to already have specific ideas for a
Subversion task you'd be interested in working on for GSoC, let us
know! While that's certainly not required, it certainly doesn't hurt.
 There may be some great, summer-sized ideas that real users like you
need that we wouldn't have necessarily thought of ourselves.
