\summary{2009}{12}{7}

Agenda call: 

Agenda announcement: 
\agoref{gentoo-council}{55e2123621095cba53e2fe4d700bfb76}

\agendaitem{Actions}
\index{council!votes!by mail}

\begin{itemize}
 \item 
 Discuss voting by e-mail post-meeting in case of absence
 \item
 ulm to talk with Zac Medico about defining current portage mtime
  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
  what happens next (via e-mails) is necessary before the 18th December,
  2009.
\end{itemize}


\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.


\agendaitem{Prefix support}
\index{prefix}

\end{itemize}


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.
