+The council was asked to vote if alpha, ia64, m68k, s390, sh, and
+sparc should be dropped to unstable keywords. Alternatively, only the
+packages pulled in by the system set could be stable for these
+architectures. In the council's discussion it was argued that arch
+testing is a lot of work and that some arch teams cannot keep up.
+It was also pointed out that dropping keywords to unstable is an
+action that is hard to revert, because restoring a consistent stable
+dependency tree will require retesting of many packages.

+The council discussed if the contents of the VDB should be specified
+for interoperability between utilities, either in the PMS or possibly

+an abstraction layer to make some of the VDB's information available.
+Finally, the following vote was taken:

+Discussion from last week's meeting was continued. Options considered
+were a) to drop all ebuilds to an unstable keyword and b) the
+following proposal of rich0, hereinafter called "package-by-package":
+
+\begin{quote}
+ If a maintainer has an open STABLEREQ, or a KEYWORDREQ blocking a
+ pending STABLEREQ, for 90 days with archs CCed and otherwise ready
+ to be stabilized, the maintainer can remove older stable versions of
+ the package at their discretion. A package is considered ready to be
+ stabilized if it has been in the tree for 30 days, and has no known
+ major flaws on arches that upstream considers supported.
+\end{quote}

+
+Reference: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.gentoo.project/2946 (dead link)
+
+
+Following the decision in the 20130813 meeting, williamh asked the
+council to agree that the preparations for early boot mechanisms are
+complete and that the necessary documentation is in place. In the
+following discussion it was noted that documentation for NFS mounted
+/usr was still missing (\bug{481660}). According to williamh, this
+should just work, without any need for separate documentation. Some
+council members expressed their concern that separate /usr support
+shouldn't be removed proactively. The overall opinion on this was that
+the base-system team should be trusted to do the right thing. It was
+agreed that a news item should be sent, followed by a reasonable
+transition time for users.
+
+\vote{The Council agrees that all preparations for dropping support for
+ separate /usr without an initramfs or similar boot mechanism are
+ complete. A news item will be prepared, and users will be given one
+ month to switch after the news item has been sent.}{
+ Accepted with 5 yes votes, 1 no vote, 1 abstention.}

+ \item
+ \bug{485448}:
+ Migration to the wiki was welcomed by council members. It was noted
+ by dberkholz that the wiki in general could profit from a better
+ skin. Also the list of meeting logs should be folded by default, or
+ moved to a subpage.
+ Action: Complete the migration, redirect old project pages (ulm).

+\index{INSTALL_MASK}
+
+WilliamH brings up the issue of using INSTALL_MASK for avoiding
+installation of small utility files. His question is how we could
+avoid requiring a re-build of the entire installed package set when
+the value of INSTALL_MASK is changed. As a possible solution, a
+feature for the package manager is proposed: it could record whether
+a package is affected by INSTALL_MASK during installation, and offer
+a switch to only rebuild all these packages. Implementation should
+not have high priority though.
