I agree with you. I asked by email to be added in May. In June someone
asked my "why don't you ask to get on planet GNOME ?" so I asked
again. I think I asked again by mail since but can't find it...
About one month ago I tried to ask in private on IRC without answer again.

So I am thinking that the answer is either 3,4 or 6...

I would really have preferred something public, with an answer even if
it is "your blog does not look enough related to GNOME" or "Your
English is not good enough" or "You are not involved enough in GNOME"
or whatever...

In my opinion, the issue is not about having control over what get
included, but about tracking the requests.

How many people asked, never got any answer and don't know why ?
