Formerly I also did not really understood why Debian's GSoC maintainers
to not like packaging focussed projects.  However, when I read the
posting on Fedora Medical SIG[1] from a GSoC student I suddenly became
aware that the strategy of our GSoC maintainers simply helps to create a
sustainable result.  I do not think that it helps to much if a GSoC
student does some "random" packaging and afterwards orphans the packages
and just hopes someone will pick his work for further maintenance.

Kind regards
