Oh come on. You're just shooting the messenger. You don't like being told that if you want something, someone needs to do the work, and you can't just say "I want a flying unicorn!" and expect it to happen. I'm not the only one saying it, either. I point you to this, for example: http://archives.gentoo.org/gentoo-dev/msg_86b67d8ab51a24922a3d3be75d10f42b.xml

The procedure is not the important part. The important part is finding someone who can do enough of the work that the PMS team can understand your proposal and polish off the rough edges. The work that needs to be done for that is very much a case by case thing, and it's not just a simple list of steps that anyone can follow blindly. The features you're asking for that aren't magically appearing are hard. I'll remind you that for "big" features, the GLEP process is already documented. -- Ciaran McCreesh
