Thanks so much, assaf :)

You are right, this seems adequate, thanks a bunch for making these changes. I 
think the placement of "but is ultimately at the discretion of Savannah 
hackers" is still not ideal, but now it's visible enough to a first-time 

Moving forward, I was thinking about doing a survey of rejected submissions 
with the goal of determining both the objective scope (count, byte size) and 
the subjective scope (specific reasons given) of past rejections. I believe 
this is a necessary first step, since we would want to see what the standing 
policy in fact accomplishes before we even try to replace it with something 

This will probably take a while. I am assuming I can see all the past 
rejections, but if I hit a wall, I will give you a shout. During this time, I 
would love to hear suggestions about an effective way of conducting this 
survey, or any ideas, really, pertaining to this policy discussion.
