Since the very beginning. Submitters can submit whatever they feel like;
but nothing is getting blindly committed if it happens to look like a port
and pass tindy builds. Shortly speaking, we don't commit crappy or useless
stuff. In this sense, Doug's question if perfectly valid: what warrants
this port to be included in the collection? It's pretty big enough already.

OK, was it mentioned in the commit log/pkg-descr? If not, why not?

But to be able to make that decision, they need to know what goods port
version is bringing them compared to the base one, no?

This implies that tzdialog could be merged some time in the future, which
also should have been reflected in the commit log.

No matter if these reasons are valid or not, we should really try to improve
our culture of documenting what we commit.
