I would suggest to add at least 2 or 3 more project ideas to the ideas
page (!wiki?ideasPage) to raise the odds of
PicoLisp being accepted as mentoring organisation. 

The best case would be if anybody is interested to participate as a
student and has a project idea (and a possible mentor in mind). However,
if you would like to see some new feature in PicoLisp and to mentor the
related project, it would be very helpfull too. 

A third (viable) option is to think about a project idea that is
beneficial for the PicoLisp community and doesn't require special
background (domain) knowledge from a (potential) mentor, but might be
interesting for students in general. That way, you can propose an idea
without being the student or mentor for that proposal. 

As an example, I would propose the project "Build a web-shop for
PicoLisp". Would that make sense? Any other ideas?

If somebody has an idea but doesn't want to get involved with the wiki,
he can just post it here on the list, I put it on the wiki then.
