still don't have a title

Dear SoC enthusiasts,

please stop writing mails asking me whether I’d like to mentor your yet-another-reportbug-alternative project.

It’s not that I’m opposed to the idea of rewriting reportbug(-ng) for gtk or as a webapp – really. I just don’t see why your project needs to be part of SoC.

I know working for/with google is kinda sexy nowadays and as a student you can even get some money – but be honest: what was Debian’s benefit of last year’s SoC projects? My question which of last year’s projects failed and which succeeded is still unanswered. So no, I’m not yet jumping on this bandwagon everybody seems to be so exited about.

Don’t get me wrong: I don’t hate google or the SoC, I’m just not convinced of the success of our last year’s projects, plus I don’t think we need such an event to write useful tools for Debian.
