This has come up before in recent-ish-ly (My memory seems to think about two
election cycles ago so ~1 year.  But I'm getting old and time may be passing
me by faster than I think :-).  At that time it was still thought that
packager group made sense for people serving on FESCo.  I don't remember any
new information that differed from the discussion waaaay back in time when
FESCo opened up the electorate to groups outside of packager but kept
packager as a requirement for nominees.

Note that this is just history; the people who make up FESCo these days may
take the same arguments and apply a different weight to them than the people
who discussed and decided upon this in the past.
