Fine questions. Maybe take a look at the Weather in 2014 wiki page:
I'm not enough of a web front-end developer to say how hard it is to
rewrite Weather. But I think the back-end can be easily solved by
using Onionoo's data instead of writing a Tor controller and keeping
an own relay database.
I think three months is sufficient to produce something useful.
The question of finding a mentor might be more difficult to answer. I
would offer to be backup mentor and also to answer questions about
Onionoo. But we'd still have to find a primary mentor. How about you? :)
All the best,
