Oops. Should read all the post first. I do realize that your particular
task idea is dependent on module proposals, but I'm trying to stem off
yet another "well what if we did something about $thingy?" thing which
is ultimately unhelpful and frustrating.
To the second point, students /are/ able to submit tasks to the same
approval queue as everyone else (http://drupal.org/project/issues/ghop),
but they can't claim tasks that they've proposed, due to the contest
rules. So that eliminates a lot of the incentive there.
However, creating tasks like "Research $foo area and come up with 5 GHOP
tasks that could help improve it" _are_ legitimate tasks. But again, it
takes people to actually step up and take the time to write them up and
do the follow-up mentorship/guidance.
*That* is what we need here. Not more ideas.
