I would like to have the council discuss this issue again. We should
probably also address the issue of EAPI changes in eclasses that was
subject of a recent thread in the dev ml.
Let's add to the agenda the use of the invalid DEPEND atom
"EAPI_TOO_OLD" instead of calling die in global scope on eclasses.
I cross-posted this email to both gentoo-dev and gentoo-council mls as
Brian used the former and Alex started this thread in the latter. Which
ML do we want to use?
