I think the better way to work developing bigger than a single small
patch is to get involved, and submit series of patches as you get them
done so everyone can be in sync with you.

If you have been working on something that get accepted as a SoC I
guess it should be possible to split the work between both of you
(pre-proposal, given we all know what are you doing) or find a scheme
that can work for all.

I don't think thye GSoC must stop people for actually working on
patches outside of the GSoC program.
