That is indeed the right interpretation. Although I don't consider my
own opinion about it to be of any value for decision making about this.

I don't mind it myself, and my personal preference is the same as the
current active policy.  

Although the policy is like how I prefer it, I don't feel responsible
for it. Therefore shouldn't people complain to me.

I do think you can like a policy yet not feel responsible for it, and
that fits within my philosophy about such things.

I don't think I need to baby-sit the pgo maintainer. He can decide for
himself what to do with either my or with other people's categories.

This person has done a good job at this int he past, too.

I like the policies that Jeff Waugh has been using in the past for pgo,
for that reason I'm not asking to change any of those policies.

I'm also not specifically asking for consuming a specific category from
my blog. I know pgo right now consumes a category called "english". That
is fine for me (and I'm not specifically asking for it, but I'm
perfectly happy with the decision).

I think it's reasonable to say that pgo has been a success, and I
consider that success to be a direct result of Jeff's policies. I
strongly believe that the fact that not-only technical items appear
plays a most significant role.

Which also means that I think Jeff is a good maintainer, and has been a
good maintainer. No matter what criticism he has received from either me
or from anybody else.

In other words: let the maintainer keep making such decisions. Although
I might have had the silly idea of using the foundation-list for micro
managing pgo before, in the end I don't think it's the right strategy
for this GNOME product. Electing a maintainer, for example, would rather
be something for foundation-list.

In which case, unless he no longer wants to maintain it, I vote for Jeff

I think the idea behind was the work of a genius. And
that genius is Jeff. We just write the (sometimes silly) content.
