Thanks Susan.  I think this guide is one of the most important content
pieces for Fedora today and the future; we are nothing if not at least
set of well-built packages.

My one suggestion, which we discussed on IRC, was to use lower case
for subsequent words in a title.  In other words, [[Titles have a
natural flow]], reserving all-initial caps for [[Really Important
Chapters of Stuff]].  This is from:

For the rest of the audience here :), categories are where we get our
information nesting.  [[Category:Python packaging guidelines]] can be
applied to >1 pages, creating an instant reference of anything to do
with packaging Python.  Categories can be nested in each other, and
across each other, to create organic and intentional pathways for
people to follow.
