Note that I don't disagree with the text that was proposed. My 2 cent: Put

("best practices for filing this box with information").

Just to be clear. You are okay with documenting "best practises" but
not requiring people to use those best practises?

Some things can certainly be automated to help relieve some
of that tension, but I'm not sure update notification text snippets
are one of those things.

Well, we have done fine without special rules for update text many years now afaics. So why do we need them now? Why can't "best practises" do, if it worked fine for so many years?

Whatever: I don't care much about this specific set of rules. It just seems to me a general trend that more and more rules and guidelines are put into place in Fedora-land; and more and more work is outsourced onto the packagers. Sure, some of the rules and the outsourcing is needed -- but I find this trend very alarming.
