Summary:

The following drafts are now official guidelines, having been accepted
by FESCO last week:

* RubyGems with C code -
  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/RubyGem_with_C_code
* Font packaging automation -
  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/Fonts_packaging_automation
* Updates to the Eclipse plugin guidelines
* Make adherence to the FHS a MUST, with the added exception of
  /usr/<target> for cross toolchains.

These should be written into the guidelines soon if this hasn't
already been done by the time you read this.

Issues pending FESCO ratification:

*  Font package splitting rules
   http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/Font_package_splitting_rules_%282008-12-21%29

Misc business:

*  Font package naming -
   http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/Font_package_naming_%282008-12-22%29
 o Passed back to the submitter with comments and questions. 

* Use of absolute symlinks in packages -
  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/Absolute_symlinks_in_fonts_templates_%282009-01-02%29
 o Turns out that rpm can be made to convert all symlinks to relative
   ones transparently, so that's being experimented with first.
