Upgrade of policy, and failed proposals

Hi folks,

        I was all set to go in and update policy for woody, but I then
 realized that there are only two amendments that can be acted on:

     #40934: [ACCEPTED 10/26/99] changelog.html.gz sanitization
     #43787: [AMENDED 07/09/1999] policy on -g, a proposal

        The following discussions have not made it to a formal
 amendment pahse in over 6 months, and shall be marked rejected. I
 think that some of these have merit; and if some of you think so,
 please move to having the discussion revived.
