+During discussion, is was remarked that some changes, e.g. to
+dependencies in eclasses, could require mass rebuilds of packages.

+ plan regarding removal or replacement of dynamic dependencies,
+ before they remove this feature. In particular, tree policies and
+ the handling of eclasses and virtuals need to be clarified.}{
+ Accepted unanimously.}
+Note added in proof: The Portage team does not intend to remove
+dynamic dependencies, but only change their default to "off".
