well, it was obvious after all. what i mean here is what you will do
after this proposal will be accepted? keep it as one more
well-known-nowhere-written rule? i propose to make wiki page with
rules for "standard libraries" which at this moment may be ones
supported by libraries@ community

these rules will include "submission procedure" and anything else we
agree by standard process

Best regards,
