(I have quite a lot of backlog in various fields, so I just briefly comment on 
one aspect here. I plan to comment and do more...)

I think that's a great plan, thanks!

And even though I agree that the current packaging is not easy for newcomers, 
I have to say that I found README.packaging to be very well written and 
working nicely! :)

But more documentation and a standardized workflow is definitly even better!

I assume this is post-lenny stuff, which shouldn't be that far anyway. 
Speaking of which, bugfixes can still make it into lenny, especially if bugs 
are filed and if the diff to the version in testing is reasonable and 
reviewable - whether it's called "new upstream" is not that important, it's 
the diff really :)

Which reminds me of 
- afaik sugar, sugar-base and sugar-hulahop should really migrate to lenny, 
while for the rest its not critical, right? 

(This mail got longer than I thought :)

	Holger, guess I will read the rest of the mails in this folder now too ;)
