I compared a Fedora Packaging Guidelines  and SUSE Packaging Convetions  and I think that Fedora documentation is really better than we provide. It's not only about amount of information, but mainly in structure of it. For example if we want to read about License policy in SUSE and start on Packaging page  - how can user get from this page to equivalent of Licensing guidelines ? Fedora way is Packaging -> Packaging/Guidelines -> Packaging/LicensingGuidelines
Or another example - is really necessary talk about BuildService account on packaging cookbooks of KDE or Java? In fact with this structure, where they exists outside Packaging/ it makes a sense, but it's really necessary?
If we want to help a community to participate on openSUSE (for example packaging in Contrib) we also need a better documentation than we have.
So main questions are: - how could be Packaging/ maintained (eg. we would have a Docbook original somewhere and convert it to wiki as SUSE packaging conventions )? - how could we structure existing information to be more readable and useful for community? - what is missing, or unclear and needs to be improved? (- and who will do this all ;-))
