De jure there is just one GNU organization, de facto we had 24
sub-projects competing for students and slots.

Let's agree to disagree. It's your call, I still think it's unfair to all

For next year it would be nice to have a clear set of internal
GNU GSoC rules drawn out before the start of the program, so that all
sub-projects know how things go. We had a lot of confusion in April and now
again - this can be avoided.

By the way - would it be possible to get the Google mentoring money for
the GNU Radio sub-project to fund a student GSoC student to attend the GNU
conference this September to present his results?

attend it before?

No, unfortunately I don't have time. I never attended (this is my first
GSoC year),
but indeed it sounds like great fun.
