I think that it might also be that 'Git# implementation' is just too
big a project for single Google Summer of Code, even for two students.
JGit/EGit is developed for much longer than a single summer, with
larger number of developers than one or two students, and it is not
yet complete Git implementation.  The JGit GSoC 2008 project was simply
"Eclipse plugin push support", and that size of project worked
wonderfully (see http://git.or.cz/gitwiki/SoC2008Projects page).

So for the future I think it would be better to a) define smaller sized
projects with definite (and reachable) goals; b) maintain better contact
with Git Development Community (git mailing list, #git IRC channel).
