To be able to work in Vidalia you will mainly need to understand how Qt
works. Vidalia is built upon that framework and its core idioms. Qt is
C++, but you can "avoid" C++ if you work on a plugin which would be in
javascript (but you'll need to understand core Qt concepts).
That being said, both proposed projects need C++.

Regarding the Tor Controller Status Events project, it is still
available in the sense that you can submit a proposal, which doesn't
mean that there aren't more people wanting to work on it.

You should join us on IRC #vidalia (or #tor-dev for general tor
development discussions) at OFTC if you want to get involved with us
regardless of GSoC.
