Please, feel free to add those algorithms to the wish-list table on this wiki

FYI, please watch
as the GIL competency test section may receive some updates during next days.

See the relevant section on the template page at

Also, here is what the old Boost Wiki from previous years say, e.g.:
"Submission of the programming test should be via copying and pasting
what you wrote
into the end of the proposal you submit to Google Melange."

Basically, you will be writing your GSoC project proposal to submit to Google
and that should include the competency test, e.g. copied relevant bits of code
or links to your GitHub repository with your competency test project.

Yes, as per the wiki
there are at least two people willing to mentor for GIL during GSoC 2020.
Keep in mind, it is still early - it's a good idea to check GSoC
timeline though.
