It is still possible to register as a mentor for GSoC, and it is even still possible to apply as a student in GSoC (this week only, though). However, we did not list this task on our ideas page this year. It was only potentially open to you (but you're not eligible as a student) and to Aleksey (but he's probably not applying for a variety of his own reasons, although he's welcome to). So it looks like it won't be worked on under this year's GSoC. Well, technically any GSoC eligible student may make any proposal, and we'll consider it fairly, like we did back in GSoC 2011 when this task was listed on our ideas page. I am just being realistic here, so I felt it'd be unfair to list a task on the ideas page where the chances of a candidate without prior exposure to the task would be slim. I primarily view this as potential continuation of GSoC 2011-2012, where you and Aleksey have already made competitive proposals (vs. other proposals we received at the time). Of course, I wouldn't mind it if another student reading this impresses us with a proposal for this idea, and we might accept him or her if so, but like I said I find this very unlikely.
