I like it in general, although near the end I think I would prefer to have (c)
maintainer is in control moved to (a). It's also a pretty heavy policy (in the
sense of, having read it, going "whooo, have we really got to have this much
bureaucracy?"), so that it'd be nice to have a light-weight, happy TL;DR
version as well. Something that I'd formulate as follows:
"When you (are going to) bump an external dependency, drop a note to sysadmin@
and the CI group and distributions@ as well, so that many of the consumers of
your code know what's going on and can adjust their tooling, base systems or
packaging to suit."
(though perhaps that glosses over potential problems *too* much)
