Well, for the FPC, high quality packaging is pretty much our only
mission. I'm trying to avoid veering off into hyperbole here, but if we
can't be focused on our specific mission then that kind of complicates
I don't think high quality packaging for its own sake _should_ be the
FPC's mission. It should be high quality packaging _for the sake of the
Fedora mission, values, and objectives_. Otherwise, it should be the
Something-Else Packaging Committee rather than Fedora Package
Committee. And that's not to pick on FPC in particular -- all Fedora
Subprojects should have the overall project's goals in mind.
But if FESCo or the board or whoever wants to say that we no longer
really care about bundling, then FPC will stop caring. Right now we've
been told to care about bundling and so we developed all of this process
and rules to implement that directive.
Yeah, I think this thread is aimed at figuring out exactly that.
