The council voted on the list of EAPI 5 features. A detailed list was
sent to the gentoo-project mailing list before the meeting, see 
\agoref{gentoo-project}{9189b1ca7d79da1fc76b47e5ff9f0e02}.

Chainsaw remarked that in future a short plain text summary for each
item should be provided.

\begin{itemize}
\item Slot operator dependencies, \bug{229521}
\item Sub-slots, \bug{424429}
\item Profile IUSE injection, \bug{176467}
\item At-most-one-of operator for REQUIRED_USE, \bug{354219}
\item EBUILD_PHASE_FUNC variable, \bug{390765}
\item Mandate GNU find, \bug{384157}
\item new* commands can read from standard input, \bug{263565}
\item Parsing of the EAPI assignment is mandatory, \bug{402167}
\item src_test support for parallel tests, \bug{363005}
\item Stable use forcing and masking, \bug{431078}

\end{itemize}
These have been accepted unanimously.

\begin{itemize}
 \item econf --disable-silent-rules, \bug{379497}
\end{itemize}
Accepted unanimously for EAPI 5; rejected applying it retroactively to EAPI 4 
(0 yes, 4 no, 1 abstain). Therefore, no vote necessary for EAPIs 0 to 3.

\begin{itemize}
 \item User patches
\end{itemize}
Rejected unanimously for EAPI 5. Several council members remarked that this is a 
controversial feature and that it should at least be postponed to a later EAPI.

\begin{itemize}
 \item License groups in ebuilds, \bug{287192}
 \item EJOBS variable, \bug{273101}
\item Source eclasses only once, \bug{422533}
\item Extended default list of extensions in dohtml, \bug{423245}
\item REPOSITORY variable, \bug{414813}
\item Repository dependencies, \bug{414815}
\item Cross-compile support, \bug{145737}
\item Directories for use.* and package.* in profiles, \bug{282296}
\item make.defaults etc. in \${repository_path}/profiles, \bug{414817}
\item HDEPEND: host dependencies for cross-compilation, \bug{317337}
\end{itemize}
No support from any council member for any of these in EAPI 5.
