Savane is a Django project, so it should be relatively an easy project
to get into.

How about something like this?

    Savane is the piece of software that runs Savannah: it interfaces
    users and system administration. Savane manages a list of members
    and services for each project, and provides a flexible
    bug/task/support tracker. It's also responsible for replicating
    project services (Git, Bazaar, mailing lists, webpages, etc.) to
    the system. You can see it in action at

    Its current codebase is inadequate for a number of tasks, the
    interface is clunky, and there are several architectures issues.
    For this reason, Savane is in the middle of a complete rewrite in
    Python and Django, and is not ready to replace the old PHP
    codebase. A successful student should implement enough of the
    current TODO in the top-level git directory so that the Python
    rewrite can replace the current PHP codebase.

    The git repository can be found here:

I of course offer myself as a mentor.
