You do not need to wait for Dan, if you mentor these projects or you 
have mentors for them, go ahead editing our ideas list. Simply add a 
section for "Real Time Linux" or add your proposals to the kernel section.

Please provide me with the Google addresses of the mentors, for example 
by adding them to the project descriptions like I did with the 
OpenPrinting and kernel projects.

Great. Add this description to the ideas list in a new section for the 
Driver Backports group. Please also tell who will be the mentors and 
what the students should know.

Pitti, would you also do mentoring on this project?

Please make sure that I have the Google addresses of all the mentors.
