There is no such thing as a FreeDesktop project.  FreeDesktop sets standards 
like desktop files, it doesn't build or choose implementations.  Just because 
a project chooses to use fdo facilities does not mean it has been chosen or 
blessed by fdo.  There is no process for fdo to do such a thing. It is a 
failing of fdo that it doesn't do so, and that it doesn't stop people form 
claiming to be fdo projects when they are not. /rant

What colord is is a Red Hat project, or more exactly a Richard Hughes project 
that Red Hat has allowed him to work on and Gnome has chosen to use.
