Subject: Question I had while writing my devmanual patch about eclasses
Date: Thu, 4 Jun 2009 19:01:02 -0400
While writing the devmanual patch that I agreed to write for removal of
eclasses I came across the very vague definition of "deprecating"
eclasses before removal. Ulrich(last name ommitted to avoid stabbing ;-) )
and we came up with the following for the process of deprecating an
eclass:

a. make sure nothing in the tree uses it any more
b. announce deprecation on -dev
c. put a warning in pkg_setup
d. add a line containing exactly "# @DEAD" for vapier's man pages

Please vote so we don't have to go over this in a meeting. I personally
am fine with it, but my vote matters little.
