Hi Kenneth,

all the four topics you are listing below already have student 
candidates.  I updated the ideas page with the name of current 
candidates for each topic 
(http://wiki.zope.org/gsoc/SummerOfCode2008#suggested-projects). It 
might have been unclear to you that students can propose SoC topics 

I recommend that you choose a topic that doesn't have a candidate yet or 
propose a new topic yourself. You could, for instance, take a look at 
the topic "Grok and Catalog", subscribe to grok at zope.org through


,spend some time researching on a Grok instance and asking questions on 
grok at zope.org, and then look for a potential mentor here. (Note:I am 
just the general ZF SoC administrator, not a mentor.)
