Vote on GLEPs 58 to 61
Open discussion on VDB
GLEPs 58 to 61
GLEPs 58, 59 and 60 were approved unanimously by all present members. GLEP 61
was approved with four votes for it, one against and one abstention.
The council believes that specifying a unified VDB cache could prevent package
managers from innovating. The council also considers that the use of e.g. a
timestamp to facilitate working (or experimenting) with different VDB caches
is a nice thing, but prefers leaving the decision whether to implement such a
feature to the developers of the package managers.
