That's only ideas list, it's up to you to come with proposal for GSoC
and we then choose only the best proposals.

At least editing and displaying types nicely. Adding some search
interface would be handy as well.

The scope should be defined by time you have for GSoC - 12 weeks and
you are expected to spend 40 hours a week on it.
