Yesterday we had a discussion at SLOB meeting regarding possibility to
submit GSoC projects without coding tasks (marketing, documentation,
I asked a question regarding this point on the GSoC mentor mailing list.
Following is the very clear answer from Cat Allman, member of the Google
GSoC team. Shortly: "GSoC is about coding".
So I suggest that we update our project list page  to be more compliant
with these rule. Few projects are clearly not coding tasks today.
Best regards from France.

Summer of Code is indeed about coding. Our program for teens, Google
Code-in, includes other kinds of open source contribution, but GSOC does
