The RFC looks good to me too. The process of introducing and passing 
proposals is straightforward, with a process for working through 
dispute, using methods that we've seen used successfully elsewhere.

I don't have anything to add, except perhaps a mention that 
adding/removing individual packages from the distribution doesn't 
/necessarily /need an RFC, but that it is good form to announce on the 
mailing list in advance of intention to do so.
