Yeah, what Paul said. That guide (not written by me -- it pre-existed my
Debconf10 talk) is pretty good. It would, however, be a good idea to get
more input from other distros to improve it. The other distros might
have their own documents, too.

(If the other distros feel they'd rather help improve it on neutral
territory, I'd be happy to set up an ikiwiki instance for this, but I'd
rather not do it pre-emptively.)

Having a joint group or mailing list or something to discuss these
things across distros would be a good idea.
