[maemo-community] Maemo Packaging Policy

	Since we are all here on this list, actively working to define  
maemo.org, I would like to turn our attention to the official  
packaging document; Maemo Packaging Policy v0.23. https://maemo.org/forrest-images/pdf/maemo-policy.pdf

	This document has a lot of missing pieces. This makes it hard for  
someone to get started packaging specifically for maemo if they do not  
have a debian packaging background. This is unfortunate.

	I think a clear, well defined policy document is a pre-requisite for  
high quality packages, which in turn will lead to more stable software  
on the tablets and happier users.

	I would like to request that the council engage with Nokia to define  
ownership of the policy manual and task the relevant parties with  
updating the documentation and policy itself so that we can have a  
more complete and up-to-date policy for the community and those  
working on maemo packages.

	Warm regards,
