What I want to resolve is this:

* There are regular complaints about lack of responsiveness in the
maintainership of Planet Gnome.

* The process is not transparent.  When someone mails you, "add my
blog", or "update my hackergotchi", no one but that person will know if
he got a reply, or what the reasons were for his request getting

* There's no way to know what makes a hackergotchi that will be
accepted, or a whole blog for that matter.

Planet Gnome has trascended a personal project into being a community
resource; congrats on that!  PGO is the only thing I read *outside* my
normal aggregator because it is *so nice* to look at.  Your
maintainership on that front has clearly been very good; now what I want
to do is to make it all smoother for everyone.

Ah, that's good to know.  Who's on the team, so that we may inquire them
about the progress?

"Sucking guidelines out of my head" --- that's exactly the kind of
problem we need to solve.  If this is not documented, every rejection
seems arbitrary.
