these are good ideas. But what about something completely different.
What about semantically enabling bugzilla, using Linked Data  so
that one can link bugs from any bug tracking system to other bug
tracking systems. I put a video online a few years ago explaining both
the semantic web and how this could be useful . In the mean time we
have deployed a group to develop a bug ontology http://code.google.com/p/baetle/
which is getting interest every day. I have extracted millions of
relations from the issuezilla database of Netbeans in a few days.
I don't think this would be too much work, and we have a lot of people
who would be happy to help out.
A few of us could be mentors on such a project too.
