For what it's worth, for the projects that are almost ready to 
recommend, but not quite there (like Flit per the discussion on issue 
336), would it hurt to have an "provisional" area to the key projects 
list that makes people aware of the projects without "blessing" them as 
Key Projects.  The whole point of that section of the guide is to raise 
awareness, yes?  Well if something like Flit is almost ready, but 
pending for a small reason or two, why not publish it anyway with some 
kind of "provision" label or something and an explanation of why the 
project is important, but not quite yet ready?

"Provisional" may not be the best term, couldn't think of a better term 
at the moment.

Just my $0.02.
