I marked these as verified, linking to this thread

That works for me, with maybe with a list of the projects and a set of 
instructions on how to apply for them as part of GSoC. I would suggest to add 
something like

==== Additional Pioneer Projects ====
|Project=Additional Pioneer Projects
|Verified=Feb 8th, 2015 (see this 
|Contact=Send a mail to mirageos-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx if you're 
interested in starting on one or several of these projects. 
|Difficulty=Various levels of difficulty
|Desc=This is a list of pioneer projects for Mirage OS, covering area such as 
'''Build Tools''', '''New Libraries''', '''Storage Technologies''', 
'''Networking Technologies''', '''Interfaces to Non-Ocaml (aka foreign) 
Languages''' and other topics. Note that some of these projects may be too 
small or too big for a single GSoC project. If you are interested in one of 
these, make sure you discuss first on mirageos-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx - we 
can then merge or split these as needed for GSoC.

* [https://github.com/mirage/mirage-www/wiki/Pioneer-Projects Complete list of 
Pioneer Projects]
|GSoC=yes, but do check mirageos-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx first
