So a bunch of ideas has been added:

* Create a public calendar
* Calendar/Contact/Mail integration
* Import in Contacts app
* Integrate Tasks with Notifications and Activity
* Improve Spreed integration

These apps have a mentor, some of whom were volunteered by me (raimund and 
Henni) and thus I'd like them to check if that's OK. Also - any others who 
want to mentor?

I expect at least a Mail app idea + mentor to be added soon.

Students - only one of you will be able to do a Gallery GSOC. Probably wise to 
look at the other ideas now as they will have less competition ;-)
