I've nominated myself to apply to Google's Summer of Code project this
year for DragonFly.  On Jeff Hsu's advice, I'm getting as much details as
possible together before applying.

Rob Holland - are you still available to mentor?  You had mentioned a
desire to do so about a month ago.  Anyone else who is interested as a
mentor or student, please speak up.

What projects would people like to see?  My list so far (in part from Jeff):

- Porting DTrace
- Porting ZFS
- Capriccio threads
- Xen support as domU and dom0 platform
- AMD64 support
- Bringing in version 2.0 of the BSD Installer
- LiveCD with a DragonFly-specific X desktop, integrated into nrelease build
- Binary upgrades
