GSoC Debian projects are not 'officially endorsed by Debian'.  So far as
I understand it, they are supported by at least one DD (proposer and
mentor, may be the same person) and accepted by the GSoC coordinator;
that's all.  And they can be quite experimental, which is OK so long as
the project in general recognises that.

Neither do John or Marco speak for Debian, so nothing has been discarded
