I also had no idea that was an issue queue and I'm also really curious  
about the standards here.  After looking through a few of the pending  
applications, it seems to me first time modules get a level of  
scrutiny far beyond that given to modules already in contrib  I guess  
that could be a good thing, as people could learn their lessons early,  
but I also expect Drupal is losing a lot of potential contributors by  
holding up CVS accounts over relatively minor issues that could better  
be dealt with in a more public forum after a project is created.   
Here's a representative example:


I might be missing something (and if I am, maybe my CVS account should  
be revoked?), but I don't see any issues there that really hurt  
anything, and I've seen all of that in several modules already in  

Is it appropriate to have these discussions in the CVS application  
issue queue?
