Of course, but that happens everywhere, at anytime anyway. There's
nothing against that. And nothing specific to Mageia.

Here, it's not being rigid, it's publishing/documenting the current
work (that may take 1 night or 3 months to run): who does it, what
ideas are in/out, what are the expected outcomes, unknowns, needs,
what will need to be improved, etc.

Note that it's not because a group completed something that it _will_
fit into "mainstream". It may as well come to a conclusion that it's
just not a fit, or that it will be used in some other area or
differently, or... anything. Anyway, there would be a track,
documents, code, designs, drafts.
