I don't think policy changes need to be seconded.  We have a policy team
that should decide on what comes in policy and what not.  Although, it
more looks like it's just 1 person doing all the work.

I sometimes feel that they go to slow which changing things, and I'm not
really sure it's a good or bad thing.

Some of those currently open bugs against the policy package, like your
~ in version numbers, really shouldn't be a problem to get into the
policy.  I don't think anybody has a problem with it.  I think it's just
that no new version of the policy has been made yet.
