Please do apply to us under GSoC (that is, submit your application via
Melange).  For your project, please specify "Owl: package updates".
This does not directly correspond to any of the tasks we have on our
ideas page, but that's OK.  For the timeline, I suggest that you plan to
make N package updates per week.  What those packages will be and in
what order we'll want them updated is not fully known yet, but my
expectation is that out of the 150+ source packages that we currently
have in Owl we may ask you to update about one third during the summer
(that is, 50 packages).  So if you plan to make 5 package updates per
week, that will work.  Is this something you'd like to work on and be
available for?  I imagine that once you're that involved with Owl, we'll
be able to start giving you more exciting tasks as well (and it'd be
great if you have time left for that during the summer as well).

Note: I am not saying that we'll necessarily accept you under GSoC -
I really don't know yet - but there's a chance that we will.
