Hi there. Mozilla will be applying for GSoC this year. There's a wiki page up for brainstorming project ideas here. I've seeded it with some of my own ideas but I'm interested in hearing others.
What would make a good internship project?
GSoC is short and pretty hands off. A good project needs to be deliverable by a motivated student in 2 months. Projects with minimal dependencies and multiple measures of success are great. Internships are great for wild experiments that don't need to pay off.
If you are interested in Rust cross-compilation, verification, tooling, or performance and are looking for an internship next year, there may be fun projects on Rust at Mozilla. Don't hesitate to apply, either for GSoC or a Mozilla internship. Mozilla internship interviews are happening now. Apply here.
