I haven't received a response from you regarding the email below I sent
about your Google Summer of Code proposal from last year. I'm still not
sure if this proposal is still a good idea for Debian, and therefore
whether I should apply for it or not. I know you're especially busy with
the election on now, but if you have just a minute to comment on it's
viability, I would greatly appreciate it.
Good luck in the election,
