No GSoC for Avahi

As it seems, the Avahi project has not been accepted as Google Summer of Code organization, much like the GStreamer project.

Grr, I cannot say I really understand why three wiki engines [1] got accepted, or a UI frontend for nmap - but not important infrastructure projects like GStreamer or Avahi. Mhmm, maybe I am just envious, and considering these two projects important is just hybris...

Anyway, we had already prepared a list of exciting [2] GSoC project ideas for Avahi. If anyone is interested to work on one of these there might be a small chance to get this done under the GNOME umbrella. Feel free to contact either me or Trent if you are interested!

Footnotes:

[1] If there is something we already have enough of in Free Software - then it is Wiki engines. just check the output of apt-cache search wiki | wc -l on a recent Debian system.

[2] In our definition of exciting, of course - which doesn't seem to be the same as Google's. Grrrh!
