Even if this is a common pratice for some GNU packages to apply as an
organization on their own, IMHO it would work better if all packages
could discuss the possibility of gathering forces specially before being

That would be nice.  However it would be preferable if the GSoC mentored
by SavoirFaireLinux for GNU Ring related projects were done
