I'm fine wih  rel-eng making recommendations as to what is deserving
for promotion to an officially hosted location.... as long as we have
the larger category of spins that exist which the Board can grant use
the trademarks to but are not promised hosting.

What I would think would be best here is that every release cycle,
infrastructure tells us how many spin images they can host. That
becomes the hard limit as to what we can do in that release period for
official spins. N spins for that release as a maximum. With that in
mind we take recommendations from rel-eng to fill that space up with
N-1 spins, with a mandate of making choices based primarily on quality
and diversity.  The board then rubber stamps those selections and has
the option of including one additional spin that rel-eng really really

Sound reasonable?
