Maybe it would be honest to leave 3 slots for OpenPinting, 3 slots for 
LSB (these are points 4-6) and 6 slots for kernel-related stuff?

Btw, is there any chance for some kernel projects to be implemented 
under patronage of another organization? (E.g., I remember there was a 
comment from Greg about KMSCON in openSUSE...).
