\index{REQUIRED_USE}

Reference: http://dev.gentoo.org/~ferringb/required-use.html (dead link)

Accepted by all members


\agendaitem{Review eclass removal policy}
\index{eclasses!removal}

Should it be 2 years since portage 2.1.4.4 went stable?

$\longrightarrow$ all members agreed on removing the 2 
year policy

$\longrightarrow$ QA will write a devmanual patch with a 
30+ minimum lastrite period for eclass removals


\agendaitem{Should there a policy about eclass API changes?}
\index{eclasses!api changes}

$\longrightarrow$ we didn't reach a decision here, talk will 
continue in the mailing lists


\agendaitem{Use of invalid DEPEND atom "EAPI_TOO_OLD" instead of calling die in 
global scope on eclasses}
\index{EAPI_TOO_OLD}\index{die!in global scope}\index{PMS}

Reference: \agoref{gentoo-dev}{dee3aab5e8c840ed3fa4add9c7d74b97} and 
replies

The council opted for calling die 
instead of using the invalid DEPEND and required
a patch to devmanual and PMS (ferring will do the devmanual patch)


\agendaitem{Mailing lists}
\index{mailing list!gentoo-council}
\index{mailing list!gentoo-dev}
\index{mailing list!gentoo-project}
\index{council!meeting agenda}

Should we post council agenda to -council? -dev? -project?

Some devs suggest we should cross-post to -dev and -council
but not everyone likes cross-posting as it can lead to fragmentation.
Petteri suggested punting -council and using -project instead

$\longrightarrow$ there was a vote on punting -council 
that ended in a 2-2 tie (ferringb had left)
jmbsvicetto and wired voted against, betelgeuse and scarabeus voted in favor


$\longrightarrow$ discussion will be continued in the 
mailing lists
