Well there are these documents:


I'm going to start to draft how our packaging policy will look like
and where we are going to stick our toolchain. And obviously i will be
asking questions a long the way about specific points of where do we
want what installed. Currently I like fedora packaging guidelines, but
without sys-root. I'm still not to sure where to stick compiled native
apps. E.g. after I compile gedit using mingw-w64 toolchain, how it's
debian package should look like? =) similarly for the cross-compiled
-dev packages.
