Ben, you and Jeff appear to disagree with my point that e.g. requiring a 
PHP tool to be installed client-side on each developers' and contributors' 
machine might be a little bit discouraging. It is OK to say that you 
disagree, but it doesn't prove the point to be any less valid. It's fine to 
have people assign varying importance to different evaluation criteria, so 
please do not use your sysadmin hat to unilaterally remove this "pure 
favoritism" just because you do not see any value in it.

My impression was that we're gathering a list of possible requirements and 
*then* we, as a community, are going to assign some importance factor to 
each and every item raised. It is therefore acceptable to have mutually 
exclusive criteria at this point, or even bits which some of us might find 
to be totally irrelevant. They are going to be sorted out be community's 
consensus, I suppose.

With kind regards,
