Google is sponsoring a project similar to GSOC
for students < university (e.g. 13-18 years old).
The appropriate tasks are appropriately scaled

Specifically listed in the announcement are:

1. Code: Tasks related to writing or refactoring code
2. Documentation: Tasks related to creating/editing documents
3. Outreach: Tasks related to community management and outreach/marketing
4. Quality Assurance: Tasks related to testing and ensuring code is of 
high quality
5. Research: Tasks related to studying a problem and recommending solutions
6. Training: Tasks related to helping others learn more
7. Translation: Tasks related to localization
8. User Interface: Tasks related to user experience research or user 
interface design and interaction

Most of the RTEMS projects are probably beyond this
program but we already have a small projects page at
which are some projects of the right scope.  A few
from that list are:

+ examples for the User's Guide
+ adding to the POSIX manual using
   as a resource (we have permission to do so)
+ Wiki infoboxes for BSPs.  Template is in place

I am looking for more ideas for appropriate
projects.  If we have enough, it may be worth
applying.  If not, then we have a longer list of
TODO's. :-D

Comments, ideas, etc.
