I wonder whether darcs ought to apply to be a GSoC mentoring
organisation in its own right this year?  It would be good to attempt to
get a couple of dedicated slots for darcs only (in addition to any that
haskell.org may get).

This was Jamie Brandon's GSoC project last year, and although that is
not yet in wide use, I suspect there is very little extra effort needed
to get it out there into the average Haskell user's hands.

Maybe XMonad should also think about whether to apply to GSoC in their
own right as a mentoring org?  As a project, it seems to have a lot of
life independent of the Haskell community.
