I should add Prior to GSoC here.

3. Students must have contributed to openSUSE prior to being accepted
by openSUSE for GSoC participation. As with openSUSE team members,
contribution can be of many forms, but those applicants with a history
of supporting openSUSE packaging efforts and/or committing code
changes to projects where openSUSE is the upstream will be given
preference at the time of final selection.
fyi: Is that a realistic requirement? What percentage of past
awardees would have met that requirement?
The idea is to get in more contributions and bootstrap
openSUSE rather than waiting for the GSoC timelines.
Is anything specifically related to packaging
appropriate? The GSoC
sponsorships are for coding not packaging. If a student knows nothing
about packaging what are they supposed to do?
Yes, but a few organizations have it. I am not sure if we will take in
packaging related tasks, but we should not completely turn them down.
Code related tasks will be of higher priority usually.
Fedora had it in 2011, a packaging related project
Very interesting. I proposed a packaging related project a couple
years ago and was told it wasn't appropriate.
For a project like openSUSE, packaging seems like it would be a great
GSoC project if Google is okay with it.
Do most of the
sponsored programs involve code living in a SCCR system
under openSUSE's umbrella?
I am not sure what do you mean by SCCR system, sorry, can you explain it?
SCCR - Source Code Control Repository.
I guess my question is if most of the GCoC projects involve work on
projects for which openSUSE is the upstream provider.
