You have to be on people's radar so they're aware of what you offer. I have
been following Conduit because I think it's cool and has a lot to offer the
project, but I don't know how many other people have been following it. One
point I'd raise about this is that Conduit is less visible to the community
because it's hosted elsewhere.

This 'wall' stuff is a bit unfair, though I can understand why you raise it.
Your path to inclusion in one of the official suites is to propose it during
the release process. Simple as that. One way of attracting attention and
getting things on the agenda is to propose stuff for inclusion even before
it's likely to be accepted. Then the answer is likely to be "this is rad but
not ready yet" and then a project might become part of the defacto assumed
future. :-)

You're suggesting that being 'outside the wall' is like a state defined for
Conduit that is outside your control. The truth is that you need to start
climbing... or you can just walk through the gate. :-)

I wholeheartedly encourage you to put Conduit on GNOME's agenda. It's full
of awesome.
