 Well for one i would not appreciate someone comminting updated
spec RPM changes on my module. I rely on the my CVS spec file features
a LOT, so anyway the HACKING files intructions applies too.

Something like that would make life a lot easier for the GPP. When have my patch sets complete, i'll browse thru the HACKING files, and if there's no policy, mail the maintainers of the package to see what procedure they prefer.

I just hope that not _every_ package will have a different way of doing things, or else keeping track of diplomatic procedures will be a job on its own ;-)
