That's exactly the problem: the task force for OTA updates has only recently
be formed and yet not decided for a concrete concept. Hence, although there
are some sketchy ideas floating around, it's not yet decided which one will be
the one we want to go with.

The devel mailing list is - along with Github - exactly the place to discuss
technical details. Of course, in case of acceptance as a GSOC project, you
will have one or more mentors who will guide and help you as much as possible
to avoid pitfalls, but for any basic discussion it's always a good idea to
discuss with the whole community.
> 3. What are the chances of proposal for this idea getting accepted

After some internal discussion, we came to the conclusion that you can still
apply to the dynamic linking topic if you're really eager to do it and none of
the other topics sounds interesting enough to you.
