I think it's important to not reject applications since we all want more gnome
applications. But I still think that it would be a good thing to have some
official gnome applications, maybe through some kind of certification system.
The applications that fullfill some criterias may call them self Gnome
software or whatever. As it is now it's impossible to know what gnome apps
that's useful and still worked on. So in short you can say that I want some
kind of quality incurance certificat or something in that direction. That way
we dont reject any application, but still give the users a hint about what 
applications that are worth using.
