As noted by Josh on gentoo-dev, 54 is Informational, not Standards Track, thanks for pointing out my error.

71 <p>This GLEP amends GLEP 39[#GLEP39]_. A new project must be announced
72 to the community prior to it's conception. The announcement should state
73 the project goals, the plan to achieve those goals, and any other information
74 deemed useful to the community by the person proposing a new project.</p>
75 </div>
76 <div class="section">
77 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id3" id="motivation" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
78 <p>Projects were being started behind the scenes that people were not aware of;
79 this included developers and users alike. It was thought important to notify
80 the community of new projects. This also enables new projects to get valuable
81 feedback before getting to far into design and implementation.</p>
82 </div>
83 <div class="section">
84 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id4" id="rationale" name="rationale">Rationale</a></h1>
85 <p>We hope projects receiving feedback fare better in the long run with regards
86 to general reception as well as meeting the goals set forth in their
87 announcement. We hope projects announced early get more volunteers by virtue
88 of being announced and in the community's view.</p>
89 </div>
90 <div class="section">
91 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id5" id="backwards-compatibility" name="backwards-compatibility">Backwards Compatibility</a></h1>
92 <p>Projects already announced before 19-Oct-2006 are not affected. Since this
93 GLEP was authored nearly a year later, conceivably projects announced since
94 then should retroactively send mail regarding their goals and means to achieve
95 them if they have not done so already; otherwise they would be in breach of
96 policy set in 2006.</p>
97 </div>
98 <div class="section">
99 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id6" id="specification" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
100 <p>New projects should send an Request For Comments mail to gentoo-dev (and
101 optionally gentoo-project) in order to received feedback from the Gentoo
102 community. Once the feedback has been received and changes incorportated into
103 the goals and design (if any), the project team should send a mail to
104 gentoo-dev-announce (and optionally gentoo-announce) regarding it's launch.</p>
105 <p>The contents of the announcements is left intentionally vague as to not
106 restrict the scope of projects, goals, and means. If announcement, projects,
107 goals, or means end up being terrible; the authors of this GLEP fully expect
108 the community to chew you out over it.</p>
109 <p>This GLEP does not empower the community to kill a new project, even if everyone
110 decides it sucks.</p>
