How To review policies

  1. Take a policy in the list
  2. Add your name on the table in the row of this policy
  3. Take your time to review it
    • Import it in the wiki, unless you think the page should be dropped
    • In case you don’t know if something could be pasted verbatim say so by putting a bold text in front of it
    • If the page you want to import does not specify a particular license, or use a license that’s incompatible with ours, you should create that page with a mention at the end of the page, saying which license is used on this page.
      • Example:This page is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 License
  4. Mail the mageia-dev ml, for either proofreading or dropping the page
  5. Until a process is defined for changing them, you can discuss these matters on the mailing-list (open a dedicated thread for that)
