That's a very slippery slope. Maybe some projects get way too much leeway
because of the big flashing lights. Regardless of how big the press
headlines are all projects should be held to the same standard.

No project should be allowed to graduate without solving all issues
pertaining to marks. It's a failure of the incubator in the past for
allowing other projects to do so. I'm shocked it was allowed.
