Meeting minutes and full logs of the packaging committee meeting which
occurred on 2007-06-19 are online:

(Actually, they should be online soon; the wiki is behaving badly at
the moment.)

Executive summary:

The following drafts are now official guidelines, having been accepted
by FESCO last week:
 * Corrections to the scriptlets:
 * OCaml guidelines:
 * Revisions to the rule on directory ownership:

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:
 *  Blanket exception for linking against libraries that are only
    available as static, and initialCC requirement.
  * Accepted (6 - 0)

Misc business:
 * Allowing SCM commit ID information into the release tag:
  * The draft is being modified significantly to remove pointless stricture.
