Hi guys,

First of all, thanks for the reviews !

It would be nice if perl gurus review the perl packaging policies
(jq, guillomovitch, nanar)

The python policy is a bit of a draft too, but it would be nice if it

I guess many people would be able to review the other policies.

I would be glad if we could have policies reviewed quite quickly.
