It could help, but as with everything we do, we would also need to have
the time and willingness to be able to describe to promo team what we'd
want to achieve, and how we'd be able to help to achieve that

So I found the page I was thinking of, at
If I'm understanding it right, the fact that Elisa is in Extragear means
it's already been through the review and incubation process described
at the link above. That would mean the only 'permission' needed would be
the module coordinator for the module you'd want to join
So the question is "who's the coordinator"... and I'm not entirely sure!
I think Harald Sitter has been most active, between Phonon and other
multimedia components, but I don't know if we've even needed a
coordinator recently. If Harald volunteers I'll defer to him. If not I
think we should email release-team at kde.org and I can volunteer to help
with shepherding over into kde-multimedia.
