The Packaging Guidelines have been updated with this statement of
overall responsiblity.  It's purpose is to clearly state the
relationship between the packager, reviewer, and the packaging

It is the reviewer's responsibility to point out specific problems with
a package and a packager's responsibility to deal with those issues. The
reviewer and packager work together to determine the severity of the
issues (whether they block a package or can be worked on after the
package is in the repository.) The Packaging Guidelines are a collection
of common issues and the severity that should be placed on them. While
these guidelines should not be ignored, they should also not be blindly
followed. If you think that your package should be exempt from part of
the Guidelines, please bring the issue to the Fedora Packaging
