Updates to Fedora Packaging Guidelines



Hi Fedorans!

The Fedora Packaging Committee has made some updates to the Fedora
Packaging Guidelines. All of these changes were approved by the Fedora
Packaging Committee and ratified by FESCo.

Specifically:

* There are now language specific guidelines for Haskell and Lisp
See: 
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Haskell
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Lisp      

* The Packaging/Guidelines have new sections covering:
- Noting Patch Upstream Status
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#All_patches_should_have_an_upstream_bug_link_or_comment
- Bundling multiple upstream items in a single package
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Bundling_of_multiple_projects
- Avoiding font bundling
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Avoid_bundling_of_fonts_in_other_packages

In addition, the Desktop files section has been updated to reflect the
permitted usage of desktop-file-install:

Thanks to everyone who helped in the process of amending the Fedora
Guidelines.
