+
+ A call for objections to/questions about any of the various proposals
+ was asked for. What follows is a list of proposals to which objections were
+ raised or for which there are open questions as well as who raised the
+ points.
+
+\begin{itemize}
+ \item
+ slot operator support:
+ leio, open questions, position pending on answers
+ \item
+ default_src_install:
+ leio, open questions;
+ dberkholz,
+ dertobi123
+ \item
+ doinclude:
+ dberkholz,
+ leio
+ \item
+ dosed:
+ dberkholz
+ \item
+ unpack failing on unknown types:
+ dberkholz
+ \item
+ docompress:
+ leio, needs to review proposal and prepalldocs;
+ dev-zero, thinks it's useless
+ \item
+ doexample:
+ dev-zero, thinks it should have -r if we have it at all
+ \item
+ dohard being deprecated:
+ leio, thinks it should remain and have its bugs fixed.
+ \item
+ disable-dependency-tracking:
+ lu_zero, possible breakage of configure scripts (mplayer \& ffmpeg
+mentioned)
+ \item
+ utility commands should die by default:
+ leio, open questions
+ \item
+ ban $\vert\vert$ ( foo? ( . ) . ):
+ leio, sees no reason to ban something that might have some valid use cases
+\end{itemize}
+
+
+ One part of the EAPI-3 discussion is whether to have variables that
+ behind-the-scenes control the default functions. The DOCS variable was
+ created so that a list of documentation to install can be passed to
+ default_src_install. A 4-2 vote approved the DOCS variable for use in
+ src_install. Specific details have not yet been worked out.
+
+
+\agendaitem{Open Floor}
+\index{KEYWORDS}
+
+Ned Ludd(solar) requested that the council discuss a migration of KEYWORDS out
+of ebuilds to be discussed at the next meeting.
