What's needed is more testing of it being done as part of the build
process and a review of the heuristics using by maemo-optify-deb (if
nothing else, any instance of pymaemo-optify in the dependency graph
should prevent optification in 'auto' mode - that's the big one I
think is still missing).

Apart from clear communication, I imagine at some point it'll need
some co-ordination between Ed, Marius, Niels and Jeremiah to try a
test-run of everything currently built - perhaps into a test repo
which brave volunteers can try. I think, at this point, there aren't
any known blocking problems with the process so it's just taking that
brave step. If everything goes well, everything gets rebuilt in
extras-devel (& -testing?) with the default changed.

CCing Graham as one of the council members who was in the meeting at
the summit where this roadmap was laid out for his comment and
ownership ;-)
