Re: Queries about release specifications [Was: who gets in and why]

Is it such a barrier to entry?  We're talking about
inclusion in the Desktop release, and such an
inclusion *should* have higher standards, I think.

New developers just getting their GNOME legs can
always develop outside the official distribution or
can submit their applications for Fifth Toe, which I'm
presuming will not be held to such a stringent test in
code quality, documentation, etc.

So, the high bar should only be for inclusion in the
Desktop, right?
