Definitly. As reference, have a look at FFmpegs proposals:
What is really important are the qualification tasks. The first time
FFmpeg participated didnt had qualification tasks and it was a nearly
complete desaster. I think from the 8 projects only 2 were half way done.
The others had nothing to present. 2007, which had for the first time
the qualification tasks, was a lot better, iirc all projects reached the primary
goal and quite a few the secondary too. Though none of them are yet
in the FFmpeg svn repo.

Go ahead :-)
Praised are the Fountains of Shelieth, the silver harp of the waters,
But blest in my name forever this stream that stanched my thirst!
