You really think Google summer of code is going to sponsor development of  
iPhone compatibility? :)  Not that I wouldn't welcome this with open  
arms...

They accepted our application and we have considerable freedom to choose 
our projects.

Congratulations!

Concerning projects, what about my Mono-D project - I am a 
student actually, so I really would like to contribute to D 
community by going on with developing this IDE (plugin), just 
with the difference that I'm also doing it for the GSoC event? I 
mean, plenty of stuff (like relatively nice code completion 
[yeah, advertising oneself sucks, I know]) has been done so far - 
but another plenty of things are left to-do, so why not doing 
them within those 3 months? :)

I think you just need to find someone who can mentor the project and 
there'd be no problem in doing this at all.

Pretty much the only thing that is definitely off limits is work 
on non OSI-approve licenses, which unfortunately includes the DMD 
backend (to my understanding, I am not a lawyer).

Walter / Andrei? Hmm ok, I probably should mail them, or what do 
you recommend me to do?

GSoC generally has a pretty well-defined protocol of how student 
applications work. You might want to peruse the official student 
material on the GSoC site and/or some of the countless experience 
reports.

We'll see what happens. It can't hurt to have as an idea.
