Re: Module Proposal: Zeitgeist

While this thread reflects a bit about some community observations on
how things are handled in GNOME, and i support such a discussion, I
find it a bit off-topic. Can we start a new thread discussing these
issues or so.

Let us stay on topic.
Can an applications use Zeitgeist for technical/optimization (NOT
FEATURES OR UX) causes? And how does it proceed?

1) Implement first and require dependency later.
2) Request blessed dependency and then implement, if the blessing is given.

I would like to know an answer from the release-team if possible,
since this is not really design related.
