I've had one possibly useful thought about this, that I'd love to have some
feedback on from other committee members.

What if we chose to divide along the boundary of whether a question directly
affects the content that ends up in a Debian package, or on a user's system
through other processes?  Anything can have an indirect impact, and this may
not always be a clearly black and white boundary, but it seems to me that it
might be a good guideline?

I think a better approach would be to come up with a list of things
we consider technical issues.

Software not functioning the way it is supposed to would seem to
be a technical issue.  Likewise, changing the way something
operates which causes other software to break is a technical
issue.  And so on...

The package scope thing seems more aimed at other aspects
of our mandate than at the "is this really a technical issue" question.
