The general idea is that it would be nice to have a Plan 9/Inferno native mechanism to help use track google summer of code activities before, during, and after the summer. The main motivation for this was some of the crazy stuff that went on last year using the google voting interface, it would give us more control over preventing such things. So, the general idea is to have a synthetic file server which exports both file system and web-appropriate hierarchies which facilitate summer-of-code activities. The idea being that you could interact with them as easily under ACME as under a web-browser. This is really an instantiation of what I've been calling service-oriented-file-systems.
