What's the stance of this site on SWT apps?

Just wondering? If I plan to develop an open-source SWT app, can it be hosted here? Or is there a staunch no-SWT policy in place at

I notice the lack of any SWT-related discussion forums, etc.

I do not wish to raise a flamefest here (there's been enough of those Swing vs SWT ones already). Just asking...

As stated in the community directory.

"The JavaDesktop community is a new gathering place for members
of the Java graphical user interface (GUI) community. Visitors
to will find discussions, technical articles,
open source projects and other news of interest to developers
that use the J2SE platform to produce applications with rich
client interfaces."

While SWT is not part of the J2SE platform it is an effort in the Java
GUI community. As such a SWT-based project can be hosted on javadesktop.
