You mean this?


We could just add "must pass API compatibility tests" to those technical

We might also list some other projects which "must be included in their
entirety in the product".

Would you see any further refinement of the requirements?

If we thought we could go ahead with those requirements and open the
program to non-Platinum/Gold members, then great.

That allows us to get down to the real business of deciding which APIs
are required and considering changing the list of required projects.
