FWIW, I believe the above flames (which match those I remember having
ever had about GSoC) are in a quite different field than those we had
about Dunc-Tank.

The main criticism to GSoC we had within the project is that it should
not be used to support student which are already involved in Debian as
DDs and/or DMs. That is a criticism I personally share. GSoC is about
getting new blood in the project; hiring students which are already
involved in the project pretty much defeats that purpose.
