The Linux Tools project had several
successful releases last year, has a detailed plan in place, and a diverse
group of active committers working on that plan. I think they will be a
valuable addition to the train.
Also, as a mentor for the project I
should have done a better job helping to get them ready for the train so
I share the blame here. I'll try to assist them better in meeting the remaining
Helios release train requirements...

Please respond to
for LinuxTools and Helios
Greeting noble planning council. I submit, on behalf
of the Linux Tools
Project (technology.linux-distros), this request for an exception to be
included in Helios after the deadline.
