Debian welcomes its Google Summer of Code students

Hi all!

The newfangled Debian Outreach Team is proud to welcome the 17 students
selected to be part of the Google Summer of Code this year. We're delighted
that two of those 17 students were Outreachy applicants, and have been accepted
to GSoC through that program.

We have a wide range of selected projects this year, from improving QA tools,
adding new packaging helpers, all the way to creating a  Debian bootable OS
using another compiler. You'll find below the full list of projects, students,
their work plan, and their mentors.
