Package Merging Policy

AndyPrice wrote a [https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-motu/2007-July/001898.html mail] to ubuntu-motu list after the meeting, and the discussion has already started.

JeanFrancoisGagnonLaporte proposed that a session with special goals and good timing, such as a Q&A session about merging at the start of a development cycle (before most merges happen), will be more useful. It was agreed that stopping schedule Q&A sessions will be suggested on mailing list and discussed at next MOTU meeting.
