Sure, I agree.  A bit like the general list of Open Issues, but listing
specific projects (of varying difficulty) that we have assessed/scoped in
some way and offer mentoring for.

A few years ago, my idea originally had been to keep all these pages in
open_issues/, and then add a [[!tag gsoc]] to those that are actually
suitable as GSoC projects, but Olaf didn't like that and insisted in
having separate pages only for GSoC usage, those that are now kept under
community/gsoc/project_ideas/.  Perhaps it is now time to revisit that,
move all those to open_issues/, add [[!tag project_idea]], and have the
community/gsoc/project_ideas page (as well as a new top-level
project_ideas page without all the GSoC administrativa) list those tagged
as such?  If needed, it is possible to add profiling to the pages, such
that some of the content is only shown if/if not listed as a GSoC project

Is it important in which order the pages are listed on
Currently that is manually specified, but I don't think there really is
any system in it.

Should only the titles of the pages be shown (a map), or their whole
content (an inline)?  Probably the latter, but their respective content
short enough/abbreviated to not use up several screenfuls (if such a word
exists in the English language)?

Do we have to keep the existing
URLs working?
