I would add:
- who is available to mentor it full time?

In this case, as Arunmozhi pointed out, the project involves a number
of important decisions that can't be taken by the student alone.
Moreover, we need to ensure timely answers, to allow a steady developing

As it is a very interesting and much needed feature, I believe that the
