Just to update - I filled out an application at length, but there were a
couple of typos in the Google web-app that led me to believe the application
was later than it actually was. There's talk of a possible extension to the
deadline as a result, but...
...it turns out that Apache as an umbrella organisation are participating in
SoC, and by labelling JIRAs with 'gsoc' and 'mentor' we appear in the list
of potential projects at
sneakily, ZooKeeper is right at the top of that list ;)). See
http://community.apache.org/gsoc.html for more details.
So the recent raft of rather large-sounding JIRAs were me copying the ideas
from http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/ZooKeeper/SoC2010Ideas to ZK JIRA.
Thanks for the ideas - now we wait for applications...
