Following up on the discussion opened up by Colin Watson on ubuntu-devel and further discussions at vUDS, we’ve created a public mailing list to continue exploring and coordinating all the work around the new packaging format and changes needed to the surrounding systems.

Since we didn’t want to block on having everything cleaned up, some documents thrown in the mailing list may not be publicly visible. Apologies in advance while we slowly move them over to be accessible by everyone. We’ve decided to take a pragmatic approach here instead of blocking until everything was perfect so the discussions could all happen in public.
