+1. Someone can create a Wiki page and put all those ideas in it. I
would have done so but I don't have enough privileges.

Also someone (jmpp, pipping, ryan) can prepare a draft application and
finalize it through the ML so that you can send it off by March 5th? I
guess you can pick one program administrator amongst yourselves on IRC
or something :)

/me hopes MacPorts makes it to this years SoC. If you need any help in
convincing Google ping me ;)
