At the GHM, a Fedora hacker (whose name I forgot) suggested that it might be time for us to write down some "rules" as to how packaging should be done.

For instance, Andreas suggested that patches should only be used if we think they might be applied upstream, thus keeping the patches/ directory as small as possible; modifications specific to Guix should be written in Scheme.

I would also like to define a standard way to order the "#:use-module" at the beginning of each file, and agree on other "cosmetic" rules.

What do you think ?
