     9Limitations:
     10 * Should be peripherary projects that will not affect any timelines for the project.
     11 * Published ideas need at least one person willing to be mentor.
     12 * Maybe we can mention which ideas require a mentor to be found ?
     13 
     14Notes:
     15 * Make sure every idea has a detailed explanation
     16 * Create a list of small tasks -- or at least guidelines as the type of tasks that can be piggy-backed on another project
     17 * Provide links to or at least mention:
     18        * relevant parts of the source tree
     19        * relevant chapters in BeBook
     20        * existing bug tickets
     21        * persons who can discuss the topic -- this is primarily for the admins, to help redirect inquiries. 
     22                * eg. NickName is currently on IRC or AnotherNickName reads the mailing lists.
