== Action Items ==
 
Status should be one of:
 
* ratify -- Change needs be presented to FESCo for objections.
 
* followup -- There are questions or concerns that need to be addressed.
 
* writeup -- Change needs to be written into the official guidelines.
 
* announce -- Change has been written up, but needs to be announced.

|man-pages guidelines||[[User:Varekova|varekova]]||2009-12-02||[[User:Varekova/man-pages/missing-man-pages]] This was similar to the Guidelines for Man pages, rejected on 2009-05-12. This draft conflicts with the general practice that Fedora packagers should be working to send improvements directly to upstream. Anyone who feels motivated to dig in other distributions for patches or improvements should feel free to do so, but it is not something that the FPC felt should be codified into the guidelines. However, it was added that if FESCo decided to take a stance around man page requirements in packages, the FPC would be willing to revisit the guideline aspect in the future.

As is, it is not appropriate as Guidelines. If the Games SIG wishes to make them required guidelines, they can resubmit them for inclusion.
 
|-
 
|Prohibit /usr/bin/env in shebang||abadger1999||2009-08-19||[[Script_Interpreters_(draft)]] This was rejected as a MUST, a SHOULD might be acceptable however.
 
|-
 
|filesystem subpackages||s4504kr||2009-08-12||[[PackagingDrafts/CreatingFilesystemSubpackages]] Instead of mandating many smaller -filesystem packages, it is preferred to improve the base system filesystem package to own common directories. Maintainers can still create -filesystem/-common packages as appropriate.
 
|-
 
|Guidelines for MAN pages||hubbitus||2009-05-12||[[MAN pages which exists in_other places(draft)]] This draft conflicts with the general practice that Fedora packagers should be working to send improvements directly to upstream. Anyone who feels motivated to dig in other distributions for patches or improvements should feel free to do so, but it is not something that the FPC felt should be codified into the guidelines.
 
|-
 
|Compiler Flags||abadger1999|| 2009-04-28 ||[[Compiler_Flags_(draft)]] || A more thorough document on how to ensure optflags are being used should be generated in the open Packagers/ namespace, then please request that FPC add a link to that package from the relevant section of the Packaging Guidelines.
 
|-
 
|Check for fonts in review || [[Nicolas Mailhot]] || 2009-02-17 || [[PackagingDrafts/ReviewGuideline_for_fonts_(2009-01-22)]] Packagers and reviewers should follow the Font Guidelines, but FPC is looking to phase out ReviewGuidelines, not to add to it.
 
|-
 
|User Creation|| abadger1999|| 2009-02-17 ||[[Packaging/UserCreation]] was never passed, and has been removed.
 
|-
 
| Avoid packing junk in CMake/CPack || dchen ||2008-11-18 || [[PackagingDrafts/CmakeCpack]] isn't relevant for a Fedora Packaging guideline
 
|-
 
|Package Names should be all lowercase||abadger1999|| 2008-04-08 ||["PackagingDrafts/ASCIINamingLowercase"]
 
|-
 
|RPMGroups||[wiki:Self:TomCallaway spot] ||2006-11-28||Revisit Making Group optional at some point, when RPM is ready.
 
|-
 
|ipv6 in Fedora||[wiki:Self:TomCallaway spot] ||2006-07-13||ipv6 initiatives should be a Fedora SIG, not a Packaging Committee decision.
 
|-
 
|Hardcoding Dist Tags||spot||2006-07-13||Allow packages to write <code>Release: 1.fc5</code> literally instead of <code>Release: 1%{?dist} </code>
 
|-
 
|Python Submodule Naming||abadger1999||2006-08-24||Should a python submodule named paste.deploy be named python-paste-deploy or python-pastedeploy.  List discussion decided to leave this at maintainers discretion (status quo)
 
|-
 
|kernel modules||AxelThimm||2006-08-23||Review the kernel module packaging guide [http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-extras-list/2006-April/msg01555.html mail on fedora-extras]  [[AxelThimm/kmdls|  own page]]
 
|-
 
|disttags for rawhide/test||AxelThimm||2006-08-31||What disttags should Rawhide use to ensure proper upgrade paths and automated rebuilds (e.g. .fc6.89 vs .fc7).
 
|-
 
|disttags for FL||AxelThimm||withdrawn||What disttags should Fedora Legacy (for RHL7.3 and RHL9) use to ensure proper upgrade paths.
 
|-
 
|libfoo<soname> or compat||AxelThimm||withdrawn||Guidelines for creating compatibility packages possibly already in advance  [http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-extras-list/2006-June/msg01079.html mail on fedora-extras]
 
|-
 
|Secure BuildRoot          ||LubomirKundrak||failed vote||["PackagingDrafts/SecureBuildRoot"]  idea is sound, but should be handled in rpm.
 
|-
 
|Register VirtualProvides  ||PatriceDumas||failed vote||["PackagingDrafts/ProvidesList"]  idea is sound, but should be automatically generated.
