I see them as somewhat related as well. However if you notice from the proposal that maintainers will be given the opportunity to easily opt-out of opening their packages, so that we /could/ if we so choose do the opening now before new maintainer containment is in full swing, since that will likely prove to take longer to set up. > > While on the CTRL+C issue to prevent commit messages: will FESCo > continue to ignore it? From what I gather in the past, there is no way to fix this outside of moving to a different SCM. I could be wrong, but quite frankly on the list of things I'd like to accomplish, fixing this is pretty low on the list. I don't think /anybody/ in FESCo would turn down a fix for this, should some enterprising soul provide one. > > Further: I'd like to ask FESCo to add a rule to that all proposals > have to be posted to this list as full text with a special tag in the > subject (something like [Proposal for FESCo voting]) -- currently its > IMHO way to easy to miss a proposal that come up for FESCo voting. > And often only links gets posted to the wiki pages -- the result > afaics is that only a few people click on the link, even less read, > and even less comment on it; if they comment then in the wiki, where > others miss it. That's not a terrible idea. Would you be willing to work up a "how to propose something to FESCo" page on the wiki? I looked for one once I created an easy to use wiki template that can optionally be used for creating proposals, but I couldn't find it.
