Hmm, I had never considered applying to make Conduit a SOC project, I
was going to just apply to do a GNOME related project using conduit
for my SOC application.

Im not sure of the regulations, but I'm not sure that I would be able
to mentor and work on SOC at the same time, but Im sure I could
convince Jc2k to mentor someone...

Are you interested on working on something in particular? Its hard to
predict what Conduit will be up to in a few months time, but I'm sure
I could come up with lots of tasty ideas to hack on.
