Alright. We'll escalate this to the Council then.
Council: please vote on the following at the next meeting:
"kdebuild-1 to be kept in PMS as-is until we're reasonably sure that no
users have installed packages that use kdebuild-1. Since kdebuild-1 is
no longer actively used for installable packages, when time permits, and
to fit in with the normal release cycle, the Paludis team shall take
steps to notify users who do have installed kdebuild-1 packages that
they should uninstall those packages. This shall be done by having a
deprecation check for at least one major version (x.y) series of
releases before removal in the subsequent major version (x.z)."
In the mean time, I'll give Christian a day or two to revert every
patch he's applied recently that didn't follow the Council-mandated
review process, or I can do the revert for him if he doesn't have time
