General Policy

This wiki is for maintaining the official Gnutella2 specification and as such requires special rules on how changes will be accepted in to the specification. The Talk pages will be the primary way of discussing changes. There is no definitive list of people who have to approve changes or a voting procedure for changes to the specification. For now it is an informal process which should be arrived at naturally and diplomatically. Changes that aren't backward compatible should be avoided at all costs. It is very unlikely that anyone will agree to such changes anyway.

Spelling and Grammar Policy

Fixing spelling and grammar do not require a consensus. Only if the specification is being changed it will require a consensus. This is so that the wiki will be as readable as possible for all developers.

Packets Policy

Root Packets
CRAWLA - CRAWLR
HAW - LNI
KHL - KHLA - KHLR
PI - PO - PUSH
QKA - QKR
Q2 - QA - QH2 - QHT
UPROC - UPROD

The packets pages can be handled slightly differently. Extensions to them that a vendor has made and is using in the wild can be added to the respective packet page in the wiki. These extensions should be clearly marked with which vendors support them so that other developers will know whether they are required and who to expect them from.
