I am also wondering whether the "Conclusions" section of
http://wiki.debian.org/Games/ToolsDiscuss should be part of the new

is deemed necessary for building games team packages. Similarly, I don't
use quilt, and would like to know the team's position on its use in
packaging. In general it would be good if the new policy indicated any
presumptions for or against the use of specific packaging tools.
