For any devs with ideas from the previous years that didn't get chosen,
the old page is here:
http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/userrel/soc/ideas.xml

I'm not going to be putting my Upstart idea forward again, due to lack
of time, and I don't think it's quite suited. Somebody else might want
to look at the potential of porting OpenRC's oldnet into systemd
however...

I am not a developer yet, but I would like to suggest some idea possibilities:

Minix port of Gentoo
Illumos port of Gentoo
LLVM/Clang System Compiler Support
ICC System Compiler Support (probably easier than LLVM/Clang)
Port of Gentoo/FreeBSD to amd64 (or other architectures)
Gentoo/FreeBSD KVM port (we don't have to let upstream have all of the fun)
Gentoo Prefix --as-needed support on one or more architectures that
currently lack it
Gentoo Prefix Cygwin support
Gentoo Prefix Minix support

I might be too inexperienced to serve as a mentor this summer,
provided that the recruitment process finishes in time. I would
appreciate it if anyone interested in being a mentor for any of these
ideas adopted them.

I'm a little wary of 'ports' as I am unsure myself how much actual
software writing is required.

You don't need to be a Gentoo Developer to be a mentor.

We (Patrick and I) tried to get someone interested in an OpenBSD
(re)port of Gentoo, but students lots interest. Maksbotan got involved
but we soon hit deep snags. There were not something we couldn't
handle, but they were time consuming. For the hell of it, I started
porting Gentoo to minix a few days ago when 3.2.0 came out. Same story,
and as soon as the issues got deep, I asked myself, do I have time for
this?!


Then I asked, who would use this? I'm not sure about the OpenBSD port
but with Minix there is some possibility because Minix is in need of
userland. *Shrug*
