Re: Defining GNOME software (finally)

Using issue tracking to handle some decisions (especially freeze breaks) makes sense to me.

Thanks for that. Do you care about external dependencies - meaning we

picking up some library that has one person supporting it might raise

knowing or a power that the release team should wield or does in fact
wield. (I'm not sure how on-topic this part is so if you want to
answer maybe that is worth a separate thread)

So new deps are usually handled on a case-by-case basis. Generally they go into core-deps whenever required, though. We usually are not picky about what we put there. Most of our core modules are, realistically, maintained by just one-person, so I wouldn't be surprised if several of our core-deps also have bus factor of 1.

We are much stricter about what goes into sdk, since that is exposed in the flatpak runtime.
