Meeting minutes and full logs of the packaging meeting which occurred
on 2007.04.17 are online:

Executive summary:

The following drafts are now official guidelines, having been accepted
by FESCO last week:
 * A statement of the responsibilities of reviewers and packagers during
   the package review process

 * Guidelines for conflicting packages and the use of Conflicts:

These should be written into the guidelines soon if this hasn't
already been done by the time you read this.

Issues pending FESCO ratification:
 * Minor clarifications to the filename encoding guidelines:

 * The guidelines contained a few references to fedora-extras-list;
   these have been altered to point to fedora-devel-list instead.
   We went ahead and made the change because extras-list is gone, but
   FESCO should ack these changes.

Misc business:
 * The Committee waded with much trepidation into the issue of
   guidelines for the creation of users and groups. This is a complex
   issue which I won't attempt to summarize, but it will require
   significantly more discussion.

 * Meeting time: We'll have to block out time in a wiki table and try
   to narrow something down. At the moment it looks like 1600UTC
   satisfies the most people, except for cutting into f13's lunchtime.
