(1) New OBS version
(2) Mailing list about RPM problems in real life

(1) New OBS version

We are going to thoroughly test new features of openSUSE Build Service,
especially new means for collaboration. We have discussed a future possibility
of decreasing the number of maintainers in various projects. A lower number of
trustworthy maintainers reviewing all new commits should increase the security
using packages from these repositories.

(2) Mailing list about RPM problems in real life

When we started the discussion about common packaging practices for openSUSE and
Fedora, we found out very soon that a lot of our guidelines is just stating how
to work around various problems of RPM. We decided to continue the discussion
together with the RPM upstream. At least for the start, we are going to use the
rpm-maint@xxxxxxxxxxxxx mailing list; anyone wishing to join the discussion is
welcome. For start, sbrabec has written a document about the most apparent
packaging problems:
