I don't. The requirements page should list the hosting requirements. That's it. Differences and interpretations can be expanded upon elsewhere (which is the Wiki page "how to get your projects approved quickly").

[...] the programs are required to be good enough in the eyes of individual Savannah administrators, do Savannah admins agree with that?

Yes, and it is now stated so in the two pages we've mentioned.

Here's one way to keep things concise:

Non-GNU projects are reviewed by Savannah hackers, who can exercise judgment,
and are not required to accept every project submission that meets the
technical requirements listed above.

What do you think?

this is incomplete description: ALL projects are reviewed and all projects must pass subjective evalation, both gnu and non-gnu.
It is simply the case that evaluation is done by different people for
each type. To repeat: ALL projects hosted on savannah have been
subjectively reviewed and approved.

The fact that all projects require a review process is now clearly mentioned in the last section of the requirements page,
with links to details about the review process for gnu and non-gnu.
Those further details expand upon the review process, including
exercising the judgement of the reviewers.
