Please link directly to the section in question, if possible.
Please merge both of the above linked sections into a more general section. Most of the content there applies also to other packages, independent from domain specifics like e.g. perl here.
Personally I don't believe the Perl guidelines need to include that information, and I also don't think it belongs in the packaging guidelines at all unless there is a separate decision that we need to have a standardized way to do this. I expect that such a thing would come down from RPM unless there's a real need for the FPC to decide on something.
If there is a need for FPC to standardize on a mechanism, someone should submit a draft for consideration.
