Inquiry about GCC Summer Of Code project idea.

I am writing this email with regard to a potential project idea that's
hosted on the GCC wiki about porting the go programming language GCC
(gccgo) frontend to the GNU/HURD operating system (information found
here-> http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/SummerOfCode and here->

My specific queries would be:

- This particular idea seems to be eligible for this year's Google
Summer Of Code. Further research on the GCC wiki shows that this
particular idea has never been implemented in the past - or assigned.
However, I would like someone else to assert my assumption that this
is eligible for this year's GSOC.

- What would be the specific educational and knowledge background that
the student who wishes to implement this particular idea should have?
I can see mentions of good POSIX API knowledge, go language knowledge
and HURD knowledge here, but I would like to know if there would be
more requirements regarding this specific project idea that are not
immediately obvious.

- What would be a skill level estimate for someone wishing to try this
project in an attempt to get his feet wet in compiler engineering?

I really appreciate any information you could provide.
