Default Guidline change never announced?

Back in June we had some discussion about directory ownership
of /usr/share/gtk-doc(/html) that was caused by
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=604169

While there was no consensus on the mailing list and most people
suggested to close this bug, things look different in the wiki now. Spot
made a draft at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/Revised_File_and_Directory_Ownership
and it seems like this draft has become part of the packaging
guidelines:
https://fedoraproject.org/w/index.php?title=Packaging%3AGuidelines&diff=157103 &oldid=157099

This raises a couple of questions for me:
1. (When) Was this ratified by the packaging committee? I don't see
anything on the lists, the wiki or in the meetbot archives
2. If it was ratified, was it announced? It is a major change in
the guidelines that every packager must be aware of.
3. Is this proposal been backed up by the RPM devs? AFAIR there
were problems with left over directories when the packages were
uninstalled in a single transaction but in the wrong order. Not
sure if it still applies.

Regards,
Christoph
