Feature Policy Draft

All new packages must be reviewed before cvs import

  • FESCo approved spot's proposal that all new packages (including compat packages) must be reviewed before cvs import.

Opening FESCo election vote to more people

  • FESCo approved a proposal to expand the pool of people eligible to vote for the upcoming FESCo election. This was done since FESCo's new scope of responsibilities affects many different parts of the project.
