From memory, we're getting close to merging this PR into its own branch, but Richhiey & I (and anyone else interested) would then have to discuss whether that's a suitable point to merge into master, or if there's more work needed to present something that's a useful new (experimental, for now) feature. I've been somewhat distracted from this by a number of other issues lately, unfortunately.

As Olly says, it's probably best to do some small pieces of work to get familiar with the codebase. Our guide for GSoC students should be helpful even to people outside GSoC (, and our list of bite-size project ideas ( is a good place to look for something to work on that should take a few days rather than weeks or longer. (That list probably needs a quick check against open PRs, since a couple of them have work in progress from earlier this year.)
