This is the right place to discuss this, I think.

There are probably various things that could be usefully done for GNU
make.  However, there's one big issue: there is no way I can mentor
anyone for GSoC.

In fact, we had a GSoC project a long time ago, in one of the first
years it was available.  I was optimistic that I could spend the needed
time but even back then I was an abject failure at it and things have
certainly not gotten any better since.

Proper mentoring requires significant time and resources, and I don't
have either of those in abundance unfortunately.
