It’d be helpful to know Very Soon if we have interested mentors and projects available, so if folks are involved in running open-source XMPP projects and are able to commit the time to and interested in mentoring GSoC students this year, can they please let me know ~=now, please?

Definitely interested. Smack requires a decent xep174 implementation and
the Guardian Project folks would very happy about it (me too, btw :).

I also keep a list of "Smack Jobs" of which some are tagged as GSOC at
The second most important candidate besides xep174 are jingle file
transfers (with jingle-xtls in mind).
