in the svn repository there is test-bed (same level as tetex-base etc).
It is quite simple, but some ideas are already in there.

Hmm, hard to say. It is perl code, loads of perl code. And of course
Debian packaging. And TeX live internals. I think there is no delimited
topic the students could work on. It is more a long term relationship

But then again, if someone wants to dig into perl, there is the TODO
file in texlive/trunk/TODO ...

THROCKING (participial vb.)
The action of continually pushing down the lever on a pop-up toaster
in the hope that you will thereby get it to understand that you want
it to toast something. Also: a style of drum-playing favoured by Nigel
Olsson of the Elton John Band, reminiscent of the sound of someone
slapping a frankfurter against a bucket. An excellent example of this
is to be heard on 'Someone Save My Life Tonight' from the album
Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy.
