Hi Hans & friends,

Well done I'd say. I agree with the points already mentioned in the
policy. However there are two points I see remaining:

- To what degree would a newer version be allowed without the
backporting-hassle? Do we need a special policy for security-updates,
since in case of security-updates the usual "testing"-stage is dropped?

- How about joining forces with Fedora Legacy? As I am subscribed to
both mailinglists, I see they would also favor a closer cooperation with
Fedora/Fedora Extras in various ways. Maybe the effort of backporting
fixes could be coordinated with them? (Though I understand they will
usually have a lot harder time to backport fixes :-) )
