+Should/may maintainers close bugs that have tinderbox logs passed by URL
+without being attached?
+
+\vote{The council recommends that bugs from any developer-run tinderbox not
+be marked invalid based on whether the logs are attached or pointed to
+by a permanent URL. The council also encourages efforts to automate
+the attachment of tinderbox logs to improve the quality of the bugzilla
+record.}{Aye: blueness, dberkholz, dilfridge, creffet proxy for radhermit,

+
+Please review the attached future.eclass. Long story short, the idea is
+to provide some of the EAPI 6 feel to EAPI 5 ebuilds.
+
+Quoting the beginning of the DESCRIPTION:
+\begin{verbatim}
+# This eclass contains backports of functions that were accepted
+# by the Council for the EAPI following the EAPI used by ebuild,
+# and can be implemented in pure shell script.
+\end{verbatim}
+
+\vote{The council does not agree with the concept behind future.eclass as it
+has the potential for confusion. Efforts would be better focused on
+preparing for EAPI 6 and adopting this.}{

+This was suggested late, off-list, and with no list discussion. I
+recommend deferring any decisions, but if anybody wants to take the
+opportunity to comment they may.
+
+See the log for discussion. This was referred back to the lists for open
+discussion before we vote.

+The council agreed to re-iterate the call for volunteers and for QA to
