PPC as a secondary arch for Fedora 12

FESCo approved a proposal to keep PPC a primary architecture for Fedora 12, but move it to a secondary architecture for Fedora 13. There was brief discussion on some of the value in keeping PPC primary, however Jesse Keating pointed out that the same value would be present if PPC proved to be a complete and successful secondary architecture.

revoke rjones' sponsor and provenpackager status

FESCo declined the proposal to revoke Richard Jones' sposon and provenpackage status based on the intentional introduction of a broken dependency. That has been corrected in the repos and Richard has stated that he will not do this intentionally again. There was some further discussion on what it takes to revoke these priviledges, and FESCo generally agreed that it would be evaluated on a case-by-case basis taking into account things like how egregious the issue was, repeat offenders, etc.

No broken dependencies should be a packaging guideline

After further discussion, FESCo asked that Toshio and Richard draft up a packaging guideline and submit it to the Fedora Packaging Committee

Make x86_64 more visible or even the default choice

FESCo asked Máirín Duffy for input on making x86_64 more visible on the Fedora download page. The initial feedback was that a banner for 64-bit could be possible, but that the page is designed for a very large audience which may or may not be technically inclined. FESCo deferred to Máirín and asked that further discussion be taken to the website list.
