Topics:
===========

     - Short discussion of EAPI 3 progress.
        Zac Medico(zmedico) commented that while no progress had been made, a
        tracker bug had been made[1] for those interested in providing patches
        for and tracking the progress of the EAPI 3 implementation. Ciaran
        McCreesh noted that paludis is ready for EAPI 3 whenever the portage
        implementation is finished.

    - Default contents of ACCEPT_LICENSE(license filtering).
        GLEP23[2] provided a method for users to select what licenses they are
        willing to accept based on a ACCEPT_LICENSE configuration variable. In
        addition it provided for 'license groups' so users could accept or
        decline to use software of a certain license type. What GLEP 23 did not
        specify was the default value of ACCEPT_LICENSE.

        Conclusion:
            The council unanimously voted to have the default ACCEPT_LICENSE
            value as ACCEPT_LICENSE="* -@EULA".

    - BASH 4 in EAPI 3.
        There were three parts to this topic:
            1) Unlocking of feature requests for EAPI 3.
            2) Allowing BASH 4 features in EAPI 3 ebuilds.
            3) Allowing BASH 4 features in all ebuilds after a fixed amount of
               time.

        Conclusion:
            By a 4-3 decision the council voted not to open the feature list for
            EAPI 3.

    - The banning of igli(Steve Long) from #gentoo-council.
        Tiziano Muller(dev-zero) banned igli from #-council for what he called
        repeated trolling after private warnings. The ban was later reversed by
        Doug Goldstein(Cardoe) because it had not been put to a council vote as
        all bans in #-council are.

        Conclusion:
            No decision yet, the council decided to discuss this issue privately
            on the council@ alias so that previous meeting time is not spent.

    - Define EAPI development/deployment cycles.
        Various Council members expressed support for Ciaran McCreesh's EAPI
        development guidelines as outlined in [3]. However, the discussion
        reached no conclusion and quickly spiraled into a discussion of the
        removal of Ciaran McCreesh's bugzilla privileges.

    - Removal of Ciaran McCreesh's(ciaranm) bugzilla permissions.
        At some point in the last year ciaranm's bugzilla permissions were
        removed. He filed a bug about the issue(#273759) and was talking about
        moving PMS off of Gentoo Infrastructure, a move that some council
        members were strongly opposed to.

        Conclusion:
            The council voted to reinstate Ciaran's editbugs privileges over the
            strong protests of Ned Ludd(solar) who said it would destroy
            timestamp information for detecting who removed his privileges in
            the first place and was against established infra process.
