As the suggester for this GSOC project I hoped that the work covered by those points would be about the right size project for someone.

As far as scope you should be aiming for what you think you can achieve in the time available.

Ideally, I would suggest that you think in detail about how you might break your time down into sections of work (say 1-2 weeks) and have a good idea of the the flow through you propose which you then include in your application.

It is also worth getting familiar with the area of code you might be working on - maybe have a look and see if there are any simple bugs in trac you could provide a fix for.
