Packaging/Review Guidelines change

As approved by FESCO today, the following change to the Fedora Extras
Packaging and Review Guidelines is now in effect:

MUST: Packages must not own files or directories already owned by other
packages. The rule of thumb here is that the first package to be
installed should own the files or directories that other packages may
rely upon. This means, for example, that no package in Fedora Extras
should ever share ownership with any of the files or directories owned
by the filesystem or man package. If you feel that you have a good
reason to own a file or directory that another package owns, then please
present that at package review time.

This is a policy that has been enforced for sometime, but never actually
added to the guidelines (until now).
