Does the Fedora Packaging Comittee still meet? :)
When might the next meeting be?
I'll note that I have seen this happen before in other groups where
meetings were moved to every other week. People forget which week is
'on' and which week is 'off', and it's enough time to drop off the
radar on what you usually do on a day or what you think about when
planning the day/week. Perhaps going back to weekly meetings would help?
I see 7 tickets in trac, including my

I'm proposing a new guideline, that autogenerated documentation must be
a reasonable size. The reason for this guideline is that there are a
number of packages in the repository with automatically generated
documentation that is *far* bigger than the package itself.
antlr3 - src rpm size: 1.5MB - antlr3-C-doc rpm size: 56MB
cloudy - src rpm size: 23.0MB - cloudy-devel-doc rpm size: 110MB
kdelibs - src rpm size: 13.9MB - kdelibs-apidocs rpm size: 283MB
mrpt - src rpm size: 34.7MB - mrpt-doc rpm size: 252MB
xrootd - src rpm size: 1.7MB - xrootd-doc rpm size: 104MB
and, my all-time favorite (which sparked this whole thing):
root - src rpm size: 27.8MB - root-doc rpm size: 687MB
This isn't only a size problem. These packages also tend to have loads
of small files (root-doc has over 20,000), all of which end up in
filelists.xml, which then get processed by yum when it needs complete
The proposed guideline is at the bottom of the "Queued but unowned"
table at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/DraftsTodo.
I'd love it if it could be discussed and possibly voted on at the next
