I think Serge's advice is good.  I had a go at putting down an order of
preference for how we should select GSoC Projects at the top of the ideas
  I am proposing that we tend to favour projects that are based on
developing existing OSM related projects, rather than starting new ones.

Please add your idea to the wiki page though, and have a look at which tool
you may incorporate the idea into.
