Putting elitism and relevance in the same line just doesn't make sense
-- consider following: by chance, hundreds thousands of non-expert users
discover the beauty of dwm through some end-user-friendly distro and
overnight it's not only used by experts. Would it be then less relevant
to experts?

The guidelines should only depend on project properties and on
properties of the problem the project addresses.
