In a somewhat related topic....
A while ago (a week, two, three?...I forget) there was an exchange (IIRC on the ML) related to updating packages in the repos (bugs, security, cosmetic, etc). A e-meeting was suggested to lay out the guidelines.
Would it be possible for someone to report on the outcome of that meeting (i.e., lay out the guidlines)? It might help the rest of us to know the who/what/where/how individual packages get updated.
If this would just repeat something that is already published (say, on the website), please include where this is located (URL, etc.).
