== PPC as a secondary arch for Fedora 12 ==

FESCo approved a proposal to keep PPC a primary architecture for Fedora 12, but
move it to a secondary architecture for Fedora 13.  There was brief discussion
on some of the value in keeping PPC primary, however Jesse Keating pointed out
that the same value would be present if PPC proved to be a complete and
successful secondary architecture.

== revoke rjones' sponsor and provenpackager status ==

FESCo declined the proposal to revoke Richard Jones' sposon and provenpackage
status based on the intentional introduction of a broken dependency.  That has
been corrected in the repos and Richard has stated that he will not do this
intentionally again.  There was some further discussion on what it takes to
revoke these priviledges, and FESCo generally agreed that it would be evaluated
on a case-by-case basis taking into account things like how egregious the
issue was, repeat offenders, etc.

== No broken dependencies should be a packaging guideline ==

After further discussion, FESCo asked that Toshio and Richard draft up a
packaging guideline and submit it to the Fedora Packaging Committee

== Make x86_64 more visible or even the default choice ==

FESCo asked Máirín Duffy for input on making x86_64 more visible on the
Fedora download page.  The initial feedback was that a banner for 64-bit could
be possible, but that the page is designed for a very large audience which
may or may not be technically inclined.  FESCo deferred to Máirín and asked
that further discussion be taken to the website list.

== FPC report - 2009-05-12 ==

FESCo approved all the pending FPC guidelines.  There was some discussion on
the pre-review guideline and it was amended to require rel-eng/fesco approval
before package groups can use the guideline.

== NM IPv6 - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/NetworkManagerIPv6 ==

FESCo approved this feature for Fedora 12

== PolicyKitOne - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/PolicyKitOne ==

FESCo approved this feature for Fedora 12

== FESCo Elections ==

FESCo highlighted that the nomination period for the next FESCo election is
now open.  There are 5 seats open for election.  FESCo encourages those that
wish to participate in FESCo to add themselves to the nomination page:
