SETI is indirectly mentioned...

Very indirectly. I assume you are referring to the mention of number crunchers.

If you go to the Einstein@home home page, you'll find a description of how two volunteers have discovered a rare gamma-ray pulsar in the data of the FERMI gamma-ray space telescope. The discovery was submitted to the Astrophysical Journal Letters and has a huge number of authors, some of the staff of the Albert Einstein Institut of the Max Planck Gesellschaft in Hannover, directed by dr. Bruce Allen, head of the Einstein@home and Albert@home projects.
