Historically (prior to the transition to Git at least) there were no
technical limitations preventing any developer from moving projects
from Playground to KDE Review to main modules / Extragear (or even
skipping KDE Review as the case may be).

The rules about transitioning to KDE Review and then to the
appropriate main module following successful review are entirely

Assuming the rules and conventions surrounding KDE Review and entry of
projects into modules continues to be followed, I see no reason why we
should change. All changes to the structure are fairly easy to monitor
(simply watch sysadmin/repo-metadata on git.kde.org) and it's overseen
by Sysadmin anyway as all changes to that repository are announced on
