Meeting minutes and full logs of the 2008-10-21 FPC meeting are
Issues pending FESCo ratification:
* Eclipse plugin guideline modification
** Reported on-list; archive is at
** These tweak the guidelines to fix a few typos, clean the templates
up a bit and accommodate changes in Eclipse 3.4.
* Desktop File guideline modification
** This removes language which many interpreted as requiring most
desktop files to be installed with --vendor=fedora.
* Cpack guidelines
** The committee was unclear as to how this applied to packaging
guidelines at all, as it seems to contain tips for upstream
developers instead of instructions for Fedora packagers.
* Tweaks to the specfile template for fonts
** This alters the template for font packages to deal with issues
surrounding the /etc/fonts/conf.avail directory.
** FPC agreed with the proposal but had some suggestions; these will
be addressed and the issue will be raised later.
* New guideline relating to generically named packages and files.
** Tough to actually write a guideline involving the use of common
sense as applied to things like this.
** Jason will draft a proposal for consideration soon.
