I have been meaning to do this for a while but finally got round to
it today as a couple of students prodded me asking if there were going
to be cross/bootstrapping projects this year.

So. I have added the following to the wiki:


This is later than ideal, but I hope that's OK. (I thought I'd
completely screwed up for a while then realised I was reading
last-year's timeline - phew). 

Both of these are 'more integration than coding' projects, but
actually I don't think that's bad. There is still plenty of coding to
actually make them work and it's getting things actually integrated
that is a mark of success in free software projects. It takes a
reasonably confident student to succeed at the necessary interactions
(as opposed to hiding at home hacking), but that's OK - these are good
people we want to attract IMHO.

I tried to register as a mentor on melange but it says there is
already one called 'wookey'. Is that me, or is there another? I saw a
mail here saying that old mentors had not been copied over from last
year. Wandering around melange for a bit has left me non the wiser.
Can anyone tell me if I need to do anything there or not?
