Someone mentioned earlier on this list that you should consider
participating in this year google summer of code. Some of the
enhancements from modules section of your roadmap look like a great
ideas for students projects. Of course code quality and overall
snappiness is crucial in most of them, but with good code review it's
not impossible :-)
Also xfce goodies can be good place to find some ideas for students to
work on. I've heard you were planning to move goodies from
http://goodies.xfce.org/ to your new wbesite, it's a great moment to
find no longer maintained projects that may still be considered
usefull (I can help with that) and give students chance to bring them
alive again with xfce 4.10. Creating new plugins to make xfce more
social networkish can also attract some attention.
