Default Many Changes to the Packaging Guidelines

Over the last month, the Fedora Packaging Committee has been busy adding
and amending the Fedora Packaging Guidelines.

Specifically:

New guidelines describing how to package OpenOffice.org extensions can
be found here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/OpenOffice.orgExtensions

New guidelines describing how to package Tcl/Tk addons can be found
here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Tcl

The OCaml Packaging Guidelines have been updated:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/OCaml

´╗┐The Perl Packaging Guidelines have been significantly fleshed out:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Perl

The Fedora Package Naming Guidelines have been updated to reflect the
new guidelines for package naming (OpenOffice.org and Tcl/Tk). In
addition, all Fedora packages must be named using a specified subset of
ASCII characters. For details, please see:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/NamingGuidelines

Also, the main Fedora Packaging Guidelines have been updated with links
to the new guidelines for specific package types (OpenOffice.org,
Tcl/Tk):
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines

These guidelines (and changes) were approved by the Fedora Packaging
Committee (FPC)
and ratified by FESCo.

Many thanks to Caolan McNamara, Michael Thomas, Richard Jones, and all
of the members of the FPC and FESCo, for assisting in drafting,
refining, and passing these guidelines.

A reminder: The Fedora Packaging Guidelines are living documents! If you
find something missing, incorrect, or in need of revision, you can
suggest a draft change. The procedure for this is documented here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Committee#GuidelineChangeProcedure

Thanks,
