Agreed. If we don't work out why Google keep rejecting us then there is
little point continuing to apply. We've had two cracks now with different co-
ordinators (myself, Felix and Vlatko) without success so we're obviously doing
something wrong. If it's as simple as nmap vs OpenVAS then considering the
fact that nmap already has Google support then we're on to a loser. Either
way, I'd like to run the development competition again since that was quite
successful in catching peoples attention.
