== provenpackager request - iarnell ==

== provenpackager request - hadess ==

Bastien Nocera was approved for provenpackager by a 8-0 vote.

== Feature: OSGi Auto Dependencies - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/OSGiAutoDeps ==

FESCo voted 7-0 that OSGI be referred to the Fedora Packaging Committee as a
packaging guideline, not as a Fedora 12 feature.

== FESCo should allow non packagers to be committee members ==

FESCo voted 5-0 (with three abstentions) to not change the current
requirement that FESCo nominees be part of the packager group. Discussion
indicated that:

    * technical issues (FPC reports, features) are approved by FESCo
    * membership in packager is not a large hurdle
    * there have yet to be anyone who has expressed interest in running that
    * would need this exception, even in the mail thread that spawned this 

The issue is open for revisiting if conditions warrant and candidates arise
that would require it.

== Revert the recently published Flag policy ==

After a lot of discussion, FESCo voted 6-0 to:

    * revert/suspend the policy approved the prior week
    * have people look into the issues and gather data (requirements of
    * various locales, number of packages affected, etc.)
    * craft a policy based on further data, or decide that one is not
    * required at all 

Andreas Thienemann volunteered to gather data; Kevin Fenzi volunteered to
assist as time permits. More volunteers welcome.
