We'll know if we're in Summer of Code as of March 18th; I'll be applying
when the organization applications open in a few days.  At that point, you
can propose a project to DragonFly (assuming we're accepted, of course.

Put details on what you want to do into that proposal.  Put in as much
detail as you can - a timeline on what you'll accomplish on a weekly basis
is necessary.  Example code would be good.

That document is both your plan to make it through the Summer of Code
program, and the way you show a mentor that your idea is going to work out
and be interesting.  Write it with that in mind.
