I was going to mention that, but refrained.

Are you suggesting that this would in essence become our certification
program that has been talked and talked about? I guess trying out the
programs would give us something to do. Perhaps a JSF official program
should be leveled, ie: platinum, gold, silver, bronze, etc. I suppose
we can iron that out once the first increment is implemented: setting
things up to nominate and vote on programs.
