Sorry for replying so late, I somehow missed this.

I will not be able to mentor this project by myself, mostly because I already have booked a vacation right when the mentoring is supposed to start.
Anyone else in this group wants to be a co-mentor?

Yes, I think that would make a good project idea.

Please go ahead and add a project idea to the wiki:

Feel free to email the fleshed out project idea to me if you don't
have or want to create a wiki account.

Is there a co-mentor who could mentor this project together with you?
It helps having two mentors so the student can get answers even if one
of you is unavailable/offline.  And it means you can go on vacation
without feeling guilty :).
