Excellent. /me does his share to prevent flamewars for the day.
Hint: I don't have time for this discussion for the next two weeks, (I'm at
a conference), but if you do, you can raise just this aspect on devel list
and see what happens.... warning, I expect it to quickly degenerate into a
highly unproductive shouting match.
This is nothing urgent which would need your immediate attention. If you
can find time in two weeks, that's fine with me.
I started here, because I think here is more focused group of people and
we can distill some proposal which could make it through review on
-devel, FESCo, etc.
Actually, it is quite normal that governing body comes with rule
proposal and people then decide if that is feasible for them. Not sure
how it comes that for packaging it should be opposite.
