It's not too late. I haven't filled the subscription forms yet.

Another very interesting would be the AAX wrapper, I don't know if it has been proposed.
Well if you manage to convince your boss, that could be great! I don't think we can work on AAX wrapper, as it seems so closed that it would be difficult to deliver open-source code around it, but the VST3 wrapper is totally possible. Especially if you already did it internally, it should be a piece of cake for you to guide a student through the task!
Convincing your boss if he's not an open-source addict always goes around the same arguments: community-supported code is more robust, you get bugfixes for free, you don't have to pay for the intern as Google pays, you just need to give away some time which will payback in no time, for sure (guaranteed Return On Investment
If you have questions about the summer of code program or anything, you can contact me in private, or tell your boss he can contact me in French, because... well, I'm French too!
