The intention wasn't to hurt, sorry again if it did. The intention was to
check the validity of a statement which was scheduled to be published in the
next DPN issue. The news item is based on Obey Arthur Liu's analysis, which I
agree is probably not the most reliable source of information on Debian's
GSoC 2008, as he was involved in it as a student. Nevertheless, I'm not aware
of any better analysis on Debian's GSoC 2008. I looked for more information
on the results of Juan's project, but couldn't find anything. There was a
request for final summaries on soc-coordination, but I don't see one about
Juan's project. 4 months passed since the end of the GSoC, so I think it's
only normal that we start seeing some people trying to analyze the results in
the absence of an official report. You're free to reject Obey Arthur Liu's
analysis, but doing so without explaining is not terribly constructive.
