+\agendaitem{Short discussion of EAPI 3 progress}
+\index{EAPI!3}\index{portage}\index{paludis}
+
+Reference: \bug{273620}
+
+ Zac Medico(zmedico) commented that while no progress had been made, a
+ tracker bug had been made for those interested in providing patches
+ for and tracking the progress of the EAPI 3 implementation. Ciaran
+ McCreesh noted that paludis is ready for EAPI 3 whenever the portage
+ implementation is finished.
+
+
+\agendaitem{Default contents of ACCEPT_LICENSE(license filtering)}
+\index{ACCEPT_LICENSE}
+
+\glep{23} provided a method for users to select what licenses they are
+ willing to accept based on a ACCEPT_LICENSE configuration variable. In
+ addition it provided for 'license groups' so users could accept or
+ decline to use software of a certain license type. What GLEP 23 did not
+ specify was the default value of ACCEPT_LICENSE.
+
+ Conclusion:
+ The council unanimously voted to have the default ACCEPT_LICENSE
+ value as ACCEPT_LICENSE="* -@EULA".
+
+
+\agendaitem{BASH 4 in EAPI 3}
+\index{EAPI!3}\index{bash!version in ebuilds}
+
+ There were three parts to this topic:
+\begin{enumerate}
+ \item
+ Unlocking of feature requests for EAPI 3.
+ \item
+ Allowing BASH 4 features in EAPI 3 ebuilds.
+ \item
+ Allowing BASH 4 features in all ebuilds with EAPIs $>=$ 3 after a
+ fixed amount of time in gentoo-x86(Overlays could begin use
+ immediately).
+\end{enumerate}
+
+ Conclusion:
+ By a 4-3 decision the council voted not to open the feature list for
+ EAPI 3.
+
+
+\agendaitem{The banning of igli (Steve Long) from \#gentoo-council}
+\index{irc!\#gentoo-council}\index{irc!ban}
+
+ Tiziano Muller(dev-zero) banned igli from \#-council for what he called
+ repeated trolling after private warnings. The ban was later reversed by
+ Doug Goldstein(Cardoe) because it had not been put to a council vote as
+ all bans in \#-council are.
+
+ Conclusion:
+ No decision yet, the council decided to discuss this issue privately
+ on the council@ alias so that precious meeting time is not spent.
+
+
+\agendaitem{Define EAPI development/deployment cycles}
+
+Reference: \agoref{gentoo-dev}{d3a4758c455fded00608e891f525d3cc}
+
+ Various Council members expressed support for Ciaran McCreesh's EAPI
+ development guidelines. However, the discussion
+ reached no conclusion and quickly spiraled into a discussion of the
+ removal of Ciaran McCreesh's bugzilla privileges.
+
+
+\agendaitem{Removal of Ciaran McCreesh's (ciaranm) bugzilla permissions}
+
+ At some point in the last year ciaranm's bugzilla permissions were
+ removed. He filed a bug about the issue (\bug{273759}) and was talking
+about
+ moving PMS off of Gentoo Infrastructure, a move that some council
+ members were strongly opposed to. When asked about the permissions,
+ Ciaran had no objections to waiting a few days for the infra to complete
+ an investigation into who removed the access and for what reason.
+
+ Conclusion:
+ The council voted to reinstate Ciaran's editbugs privileges. Ned
+ Ludd (solar) noted that infra will investigate who removed the privileges
+ in the first place, and asked for not changing bugzilla privileges before
+ this is completed.
