Indeed, we don't want conflicting requirements. Nothing is set in stone
for the GNOME certification, so it's not too late for input (what is on
the live.gnome.org was a draft from last year, iirc).

I guess it's better to let John Palmieri join the conference calls (at
least for me since I'm already overloaded), but I'll participate on the
list :-)

This is a subject that will be discussed next week at GUADEC. If you
have specific questions or concerns, John and I can gather them and it
will help us focus on this at GUADEC.
