I wouldn't be generally opposed to participating as a student, although I'm not
sure if anyone would be willing to mentor me. You might have rough idea what I
can bring to the table already... The natural idea for a project would be
medium-scale darcs optimisation (in the non-patch code). You can check the last
hashed-storage mail for where I can reasonably offer substantial speedups for
darcs. I can throw in the file cache for a good measure, unless some existing
implementation floats around and gets integrated.

Most other possibilities are way less tangible and prospective. I would stick
with the above project, there will be enough work getting this done, especially
covering all the bases with automated testing and probably improving the
automated benchmarking tools as well to stay on track.
