Hi Andrew

Thank you for volunteering! Great commitment!

I don't have any C/ASM skills myself, but as I mentioned, I'd be more
than willing to mentor something like the web-based build-system I've
been talking about. If you'd be willing to mentor something in the same
vein then I'm sure it would be valuable to the project. Unfortunately
documentation only work is not allowed as part of GSoC.

It would also be valuable if you look over http://ipxe.org/gsoc and see
if you can come up with anything else that should be mentioned there.
