Well, the criteria probably don't change that much if at all from one
stable branch to another, so having them somewhere at one of the GNU libc
web pages (probably the sourceware's is the right one for such internal
guidelines) wouldn't hurt, like it's done e.g. with GCC. I can't recall
if I tried searching the mailing list previously, but now "branch
inclusion criteria" doesn't return anything, so even your hint isn't
especially useful (and I don't want to spend my life digging the archives,
sorry). I'm somewhat surprised, actually, as I'm subscribed to the
libc-alpha list for quite some time now, certainly since before the branch
was created and I haven't noticed such an announcement.

Well, if you have resources for doing that, it will be most welcomed.
