should try to reach a consensus.  (Before changing guidelines, we should
at least hear from Michael and Jim, who have done much more than me with

I'm going to have to agree here. I think any policy change should be made by consensus via email discussion in a public mailing list, such as savannah-hackers-public. This way we allow for public commentary on any proposed changes. Plus, it adds a level of transparency, which other "free" software development management sites lack.

Personally, I sort of see windows-only-software as a dependency issue. If a project is for "windows only", then windows becomes a requirement to run the software. When you really boil it down, if a package will only run on windows, then windows becomes a non-free dependency, which I have trouble with... especially since it's the operating system...
