Have you looked at the existing parser attempts in SVN (I don't remember
if they're all still there)? Getting the first 90% of a real parser for
MediaWiki syntax will take a small fraction of the time required to get
a full parser. This makes it easy to create another
almost-but-not-quite-finished parser by the end of the summer, and we'd
be no better off for it.
I strongly recommend investigating the existing parser attempts, and
finishing one of them.
Who should I talk to? Maybe I can email some of my
parser to the mentor?
If Arne "Timwi" Heizmann was interested in mentoring someone for SoC,
he'd likely be a good person to mentor this project.
