these are good ideas. But what about something completely different.  
Something big?

What about semantically enabling bugzilla, using Linked Data [1] 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 [2]. In the mean time we  
have deployed a group to develop a bug ontology 
  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.
