After discussion on the packaging mailing list, let's move forward as follows with changing the packaging guidelines:

For changing of the packaging policies, we will use the following
simple process:

Changing of packaging policy:

wiki pages. Acceptance means: No strong objections within 14 days of
the postings.

* the packaging guidelines team will send a monthly email to
opensuse-announce and opensuse-packaging mailing lists to announce
changes to the policy (only if there are changes to be announced)

decision in case of conflicts.

The packaging guidelines team consists of Dominique Leuenberger, Sascha Peilicke, Dirk Müller, Andreas Jaeger, Ludwig Nussel, Togan Muftuoglu, Michal Vyskocil. You can reach the team on the opensuse-packaging mailing list.
