NEW packages policy.


(My apologies if -devel is the wrong place to put this - hints for better
locations are appreciated.)

While I understand that new packages need to be checked, I wondered whether this
rule could be relaxed somewhat for soversion-changing of libraries (i.e. the
advance from lib(.*)\d+ to lib\1\d+. Is the current policy of treating advances
of the soversion as new package a question of principle or implementation?

TIA for your answers.
