 * build systems ("one debian/rules fits them all"? or "perl_helper" or "'''dh7'''")
 * patch systems (quilt vs. just using a RCS and having changes in .diff.gz)
 * related: source "Format: 3 (quilt)"?
 * RCS (svn vs. git)
 * developer versions from CPAN
 * debian/copyright: who has the copyright for debian/* (individuals or the group), and under which license?
 * Policy and tools version migrations: How should we face them? (i.e. auto-bumping up standards versions? Upgrading DH? etc.)
 * Adopting packages: Is it better to repackage if packages are reasonably standard?
