To all those who remark that it's nice to see certain projects participating or that other projects should join SoC, I ask why should software development happen in such a monolithic and hierarchical form? Obviously the students get some cash out of it, but still why must development be organized in this specific way? Where are the other SoC's?
What do you mean? Anyone getting SoC money is hardly in a position to wine. Google is doing charity/good will work, and if it doesn't fit your ideals so then don't bother. If you wanna give away 4500$ you're allowed to put up whatever guidelines you wish to. Now it's google, so let them do it the way they wanna do it.
As long as this brings usable code I'm all for it, be it FreeBSD, Haiku or whatever
"Where are the other SoC's?"
Yeah, where are the "Microsoft Summer of Code" and "SCO Summer of Code"?
