We could move "ideas" to a dedicated section (below mentored
projects), but it should be clear to both candidate contributors and
reviewers the difference between mentored and non-mentored tasks, and
I'd rather have a few well specified ("fleshed out") tasks with mentor
and backup mentor rather than lots of orphaned tasks.

Then each mentor could propose more than one task, and only mentor the
one with the better/more suited student.
