Heya folks :)

Google Code-in (http://www.google-melange.com/gci/document/show/gci_program/google/gci2011/about)
has been announced again for this year. Org applications will start on
Monday and we'll try to get in again given last year's success. The
kids were wonderful.
Google changed the rules a bit this time. If we're accepted we need to
add a large number of tasks at the beginning and can only add a second
round in the middle of the program again. This means we need to start
thinking of good tasks for the kids now. All this small stuff you wish
you had time for - make it a task. If you're unsure if it's suitable
find me in #kde-soc and I'll help you. Tasks can come from the
following areas:
* Code: Tasks related to writing or refactoring code
* Documentation: Tasks related to creating/editing documents
* Outreach: Tasks related to community management and outreach/marketing
* Quality Assurance: Tasks related to testing and ensuring code is of
high quality
* Research: Tasks related to studying a problem and recommending solutions
* Training: Tasks related to helping others learn more
* Translation: Tasks related to localization
* User Interface: Tasks related to user experience research or user
interface design and interaction

Please think of tasks. I'll go around with a wiki page or similar
later to collect them.
