We need to work in our application for Google Summer of Code 2013. A basic piece is the list of projects we are proposing. This page is the main reference. Make sure the projects you want to see becoming a reality are a) listed and b) well featured. Having explicit backing of the related teams / stakeholders is also key.
Topic on Talk:Outreach programs/Possible projects
Polishing this list for GSOC'13
I(really) don't know what the goals for GSoC in this year, but if you can... I would like to see students working with bugs related to item 6 of section The Big Picture
For example (if I'm right) bug 5856  or maybe the bugs 10384  and/or 38271 
Thank you for your feedback!
It would be great to have a Latex centric proposal + mentor. There seems to be potential for many little improvements but I don't know the problem enough to identify one potential GSOC project.
About svg-edit, I have commented at the bug report asking for proposal + mentor.
