Hi Ethan. Yes, you can submit multiple proposals. If it's just two,  
that is fine. If a students floods us with proposals it's less  
desirable, but two is good.

While obviously any student is free to write about their ideas  
anywhere they like on the web, it is very important to clarify that  
wptavern is NOT an official WordPress.org site, and will not be  
referenced during the decision-making process. Students are meant to  
discuss their proposals here on the hackers list and in IRC with core  
contributors. We've just set up a new IRC channel so that students  
don't feel intimidated by interrupting 3.0 dev chatter in #wordpress- 
dev. Students can use the #wordpress-gsoc channel at irc.freenode.net  
to discuss proposals with any community member. We'll have three  
scheduled chats in there during the application period to give  
students a chance to talk directly with mentors:
Wednesday, March March 31 at 20:30 UTC (4:30pm eastern)
Saturday, April 3 at 21:30 UTC (5:30pm eastern)
Wednesday, April 7 at 20:30 UTC (4:30pm eastern)
