We absolutely need a policy document. The most attractive thing about
Twisted, to many developers, is the extremely consistent coding style,
packaging style, and central point of distribution. A project
developed by 'the labs' also implicitly depends on some other core
packages, and we need policy about things like running regression tests
with multiple versions of dependencies in order that those core
packages continue to support their clients correctly to even maintain
parity with our current development process's quality level.
Some of the policy will seem obvious, but other packages don't follow
it. For example, we should make sure that everything uses distutils as
its build process.
