Allow me to expand:
It seems to me like there is no significance to who is 'in or out'.
However, people, including potential customers, look at the list of
the Neutron stadium and deduce that project X is better than Y because
X is in but Y is out, and *that* in itself is the value of being in or
out, even though it has no meaning. Maybe we should explain what
exactly does it mean being in or out. It's just a governance decision,
it doesn't reflect in any way of the quality or appeal of a project
(For example some of the open source Neutron drivers out of the
stadium are much more mature, stable and feature full than other
drivers in the stadium).
