I'm interested in GSoC for this year, more specifically I'm interested
in improving the interval package. I have filled in my application and
would really appreciate any feedback.
As I mention in the application I'm not sure about which project, on the
interval package, that I want to work on. Any comments on which one
might be the most important or appropriate one would be great. One idea,
as I also mention in the application, I have is to implement a package
for Taylor arithmetic in Octave. I think this would be of great use for
the interval package as well as Octave in general. Though I am not sure
if it is a good idea to start a whole new package for GSoC and I'm not
sure I could find a mentor for that. If you would be interested in this
please let me know.

Hello Joel Dahne,
What you are willing to work on really depends on you. If you would like to start a Taylor arithmetic package, why don't you already do so? The GSoC program will not blame you for starting before May 30th. Your repository  looks like a good start, what makes you stop working on it? We are interested in long term developers, so we would "blame" you for not working on your package after August 21st ;-) The last thing we need, is another abandoned, half-finished, and unmaintained package. Thus no one stops you and if you notice that you need help or ideas, we might be able to give you useful suggestions. And if it comes to GSoC, we can define precise dates and goals to achieve, without having to implement all imaginable functions. But right now I cannot see that you are serious about the package and hardly support it as I don't know much about your interest on it.
In  you write a timeline about N-dimensional matrix support, you didn't even mention a word about this. So do you care about this feature? How does this fit in the picture that you want to create Taylor arithmetic package?
Okay, then stick with the interval package. I think you and Oliver have some ideas about how you start working on the package.
