So, selected KDE SoC projects are out, and i have to say that personally i'm somewhat disappointed.
Personally i think we've done bad decisions in leaving proven KDE people with sensible projects out, while betting for too many non-proven newbies.
Besides that, the IRC meeting had, in my opinion, too much power over the final outcome, and people like me or David that could not attend it, saw how their mentored projects got dismissed when probably if we had been there that would not have happened so easily.
But well, that huge power of the IRC meeting is also probably due to Google's webpage sucking when you have to rate over 250 applications.
So life's hard, nothing to see here, keep moving.
