While I love the idea of someone working on one of the mobile apps, I
think a single person trying to tackle a complete rebuild of the admin
UI is way bigger than is going to get done during a GSoC project. From
reading the description on Codex[1] I think all that's being suggested
is to take the current app, and make it work on Android Tablets
properly, taking into account different sized screen, any variations
in UX that might make sense with more space (or with changed aspect
ratios etc) and call it a day.
