sorry, don't understand right above.

from the proposal:

"Until now a script, called v.in.osm, exists, but it is able to import data
only from a PostgreSQL database after using ‚Äčosm2pgsql to convert OSM format
to PostgreSQL/PostGIS.This project has to implement the capabilities to
import directly the .osm or .pbf format."

.pbf format can already be read. 

see the manual: https://grass.osgeo.org/grass72/manuals/addons/v.in.osm.html

Import from PostgreSQL DB:

v.in.osm input="PG:host=localhost dbname=gis user=ostepok"
table=planet_osm_line \
         type=point,line output=roads where="highway is not null" 

Import from OSM PBF file:

v.in.osm input=saarland-latest.osm.pbf table=lines type=point,line
output=roads \
         where="highway is not null"

so maybe the gsoc proposal has to be adapted to extended backend support.
