1. Package build process must be non-interactive
------------------------------------------------

     This has been already presented to the list and had been accepted, but
     Christian did not have time to actually edit the file. 

     Currently, the packaging manual only says that the `build' target of
     debian/rules has to be non-interactive. Since an interactive
     debian/rules script makes it impossible to autocompile that package
     and also makes it hard for other people to reproduce the same binary
     package, the packaging manual should be changed to require that all
     _required targets_ have to be non-interactive. The required targets
     are those called by _dpkg-buildpackage_, for one. (Additional
     debian/rules targets may be interactive.) 


1.1. Deadline for tabling the discussion
----------------------------------------

     I decided to use a minimal period for discussion of one week, seeing
     that the discussion has already been held on this issue for a length
     of time. This means that the discussion on this proposal ends on
     November 7th, 1998. 


1.2. People Seconding the Proposal
