Discussions After Lenny : Sections
Sections their history, what they are for, what to do about them - drop them, keep them in current state, introduce more sections and or more clearly specify in policy what each section is for. Also audit the current ftp-master overrides for them .
Add / Remove sections ?
See bugs against the virtual package ftp.debian.org
Current request include : data, education, gis, plugins, pike, gnustep, ruby and video
Describe sections in the policy
At present, the archive maintainers are responsible for defining them and the list is kept in the policy document (2.4). Note that this list is only their names. Would it make sense for the english language description to be included in policy too? ?BR [http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2009/01/msg00185.html]
Dropping Sections in favor of Debtags facets (Lenny +2)
Who will control those tags? ([http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2009/01/msg00162.html ftp-masters or DDs])
DDs needs to be more responsible classifying [http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2009/01/msg00167.html post]
Consistency is more important than perfect classification [http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2009/01/msg00169.html post]
