We got three +1, and actually one would have been enough as per SRU
policy. However, for such large projects I appreciate having had a few
more opinions here.

I added it to the MRE page now:

I hope I caught the difference between "what is released with GNOME in
the usual cadence" and "what is hosted on", as we want the
former, but certainly not the latter.
