You dont need it to be featured for it to be your

that various people think its a good project and there are two people

mentors who are trying to attract a student, rather than the student.
Still, we don't want to send newcomers to dead ends.

We are in fact discussing how appropriate it is to feature it but, as

Mark (MultimediaViewer maintainer) thinks that it might have significant
overlap with the work they are planning to do this year.
Considering the GSoC deadlines, if there is no progress this week
between Mark, Dereckson and others, I'd recommend you to put your bets
in another project.
