I have a suggestion about the projects in idea section. Projects are listed as GSoC 2018 followed by GSoC 2017, I hope that some projects in the GSoC 2017 section are already taken by previous year gsoc students, could you please remove those projects from the list and include the remaining projects in GSoC 2018. Because one cannot make assumptions about their completion by seeing GSoC 2017 tag. And also there is a possibility that some projects in the GSoC 2017 list are completed by developers (not as a GSoC project) and it is difficult for a new comer (student) to find out that. So I kindly request you to remove those completed GSoC 2017 projects and add the remaining projects to the GSoC 2018. By doing this some student can benefit from it.
This is already done. All the relevant projects from 2017 were moved to 2018.
I just removed GSoC 2017 from the Table of Content.
I guess it is what Praveen meant.
But also some projects that was listed in GSoC 2017 was not undertaken by any students last year. Will those projects can be included in GSoC 2018 ?
Many Organizations are including the projects which are not undertaken previously in their GSoC 2018 projects list.

No. Some projects are already completed, some mentors do not have time
to mentor these projects, etc. All the relevant to GSoC 2018 projects
are listed under GSoC 2018.
Still, feel free to submit alternative proposal – there might be some
possibility that there will be someone willing to mentor the project.
If you’re going to do this, it’s a good idea to send an email to the relevant mailing list a little while before the deadline - you might encourage someone who is interested in the project to sign up as a mentor.
Thanks for your clarification
I will try to find mentors if possible.
