Of course I am happy if the Feature Process Framework will be used as 
well by the activity team. So far I only thought about the Sucrose 
release using the Framework. A process gets to be something useful - the 
moment it is used. For the Sucrose release we have been seen use and it 
has delivered some value, too.

Is the activity community interested in using the Framework, too?

If yes)
There is the part in the wiki, where we describe what is needed to get a 
Feature in a a Sucrose release [1]. How would the activity team describe 
that part? What is the policy for getting an activity Feature into an 
activity release?

Please discuss here, and/or use the talk page to describe the activity 
team policy. We can merge it then in the main page. Direct edits are not 
that easy for me to keep a track on.
