Thanks for bringing this as that was certainly the plan but (by lack
of resources in the marketing team?) it fell down and we got back to
square one with the release team "somehow" handling applications, in
this case "Boxes".

"Somehow", because we didn't redefine criterias, in terms of
documentation, schedule, all the things we had before. If people wants
the release team to handle apps, we should get back to some processes.

When did this happen? I admit I've been a bit disconnected for a few months but even if the Featured Apps didn't get updated, it was never intended to be an exhaustive list. In fact, I explicitly stated in the announcement (with blessing from the Release Team) that there was no mechanism by which to apply for "featured" status and it was to be construed as nothing more than what it was: purely a marketing designation. There were only 8 Featured Apps the 3.0 and 3.2 release (these eight *and* we still had an apps moduleset for both releases.

So what has changed? I think that there's some confusion here and I'd like to clear it up. As far as I know, everything is just fine: Featured Apps is a marketing function and apps moduleset can include anything to facilitate jhbuilding.
