The problem with that advice is that the spreadsheet is no longer relevent.  As the WIKI states: "A decision was made that the next version after 0.10.6 would be the long-awaited 1.0.0. (Unless there are significant bugs in 0.10.6 that warrant a bug fix release.) "
Even this has not been adhered to. 

Anyway, whereas this would be a fine general discussion, it does not apply to any of the GSoC inquires, which this is.  Barry: please start a new topic if you wish to continue to discuss releases.

John: people are talking about both of those ideas, but there is a lot of churn (as would be expected). Either one of those ideas could easily take two people working on them.  You are also welcome to recommend your own idea for features for GSoC.  The general idea we had was for improvements in the OpenGL feature area, and with an application like this, there is a lot more that could be done.  One of the branches that was started deals with mapping in images from the big telescopes.  That's another great idea.

Open the main page of the stellarium wiki and see the last item on the last column "release Sccedule
Click on that and on the second line of dialogue click on "this feature list spreadsheet'
You will find the task list. The items in blue are needed for the release of version 1.0.0

You will also see other items that are required later and some have no one working on
