RC policy - editorial clarifications?
there are AFAICS three topics where there was/is some discussion whether
they are really RC or not, and where IMHO an editorial clarification
would be good (in whichever direction the clarification is).
+ the already discussed topic of recommends (IMHO yes, as main should be
a closure, and broken recommends break that; although I tend to
sarge-ignore if there is no other clean solution, as all-packages
don't support something like foo[i386] in their recommends line);
+ does sarge needs to be rebuildable in sarge (see bug 273048 for
discussion about that; I think that also this is RC, because otherwise
security updates could become quite hard);
+ is it ok if a source package in main build packages in main and
contrib? I think this is not allowed (but I'm not so convinced here,
perhaps this is sarge-ignore), but there was some discussion on IRC
whether this is actually covered by #4 of our RC-policy or not.
