Ok, I'll try again.

Not allowed:

* no updates to infrastructure (mk/) without PMC approval
* no updates to non-leaf packages with PMC approval


* patching packages to fix build breakage -- but please take care to
  not break other platforms. In case of any doubt, send patches for
  review first.
* security updates -- but be careful here as well

If necessary, leaf package updates are ok, but not recommended --
let's try fixing stuff instead, we can update all packages again in ~2

Is that clear enough? If not, please mention which cases you want
stated more explicitly.
