rpmfusion founding principles

Before we start working on technical details, I think its very important to have a set of founding principles, much like the "Core Principles" of fedora:

I've split the principles into 2 sets for now, one we all agree on, and one for principles which are still under discussion.

Principles we all agree on

Principles under discussion


(1) While EPEL is not available, we will assume an empty EPEL repo. As EPEL gets populated we will work together with EPEL to avoid conflicts/overlaps. This also means that where dependencies for certain packages are missing we will provide these by rebuilding (and adapting where nescesarry) those bits from Fedora.

(2) This means that plague must be modified to support al these, or even that we may use a different buildsystem altogether if thats easier, as long as the buildsystem uses mock with the fedora minimal buildroot.

Notice that this doesn't mention how we are actually going todo anything yet, nor with which base distro releases we will start. This is intentional as these (important) details are not part of our founding principles.
