+ preservation behaviour for documenting in EAPI-3
+ \item
+ dertobi123 to check what day of the week is best for council members
+ nowadays and what week to hold the next meeting, possibly rescheduling
+ the next meetings date
+ \item
+ lu_zero missed the meeting while having a slacker mark, figuring out

+\agendaitem{EAPI-3 status}
+
+The ETA of EAPI-3, see \bug{273620}, is roughly 3 months. The currently
+implemented
+EAPI-3 items have no significant benefits to warrant a new EAPI with
+only the items that are already implemented.
+Because prefix support will be EAPI-3 (see below), the EAPI items
+referenced here will be referred to as EAPI-4 in the future.

+
+The council accepts (4x yes, 2x abstain) the technical proposition
+about Prefix support made to it by now, in the form of a PMS patch,
+answers by the Prefix team members to the discussion thread and the
+portage branch implementing this.
+
+The council majority voted for a quick prefix-specific EAPI bump,
+from here-on known as EAPI-3. The previously intended collection
+of EAPI changes for a EAPI-3 will likely be referenced from now on
+as EAPI-4 instead.
+
+
+
+\agendaitem{mtime preservation}
+\index{mtime preservation}\index{EAPI!3}
+
+The council majority voted to document precisely the current behavior
+of portage and what can be relied upon as part of the upcoming EAPI-3
+(prefix support EAPI), so that since EAPI-3 the current portage
+behaviour can be relied upon from all compliant package managers.
+The exact behaviour needs to still get documented, however.
