Meeting minutes and full logs of the packaging committee meeting which
occurred on 2007-04-24 are online:

Executive summary:

The following drafts are now official guidelines, having been accepted
by FESCO last week:
 * Minor clarifications to the filename encoding guidelines:

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:
 * No proposals are submitted for FESCO consideration this week.

Misc business:
 * Switching the guidelines to recommend the use of %global instead of
   %define in specfiles.  See for a
   reference. A draft on the differences between %global and %define
   in specfiles is being prepared and should be presented next week.

 * FPC's obligations to present information to FESCO and the manner in
   which that's done. We'll continue to use the current method until
   FESCO decides they'd like it done differently.
