So you're basically suggesting to just cover the "sexy" topics?

While sticking to bug fixing will help the project to, well, get bugs
fixed, I think that summer of code could be used to have some people
work on some more experimental (and fun) projects. Now, don't get me
wrong, fixing bugs is an important part of software development, but
it's something you'll regularly do in software development.

Just my thoughts on that, of course.
