Great!  And yes, it sounds like you've got the right background for that

:-) May want to look at my emails' User-Agent header.  (Or perhaps
don't -- I haven't updated my notmuch installation in ages...)

Yes -- on next Monday, 22th, the student application period opens.  Your
task then is to convince not only the Debian GNU/Hurd GSoC mentors,
Samuel and Pino, but also the other Debian GSoC mentors that you're the
right man for that task, and should be given a GSoC slot.  That is most
effectively done by submitting a "strong" application.  We're happy to
help with that, of course.
