I'd like council to discuss what I consider a major bug in PMS - 
see the discussion at
http://archives.gentoo.org/gentoo-pms/msg_95a13d880eb521b13d7090f30350c26a.xml

Since the PMS / QA ppl seemingly don't have the authority to decide it needs 
to be deferred to council as far as I can tell.

Short version, PMS mandates bash 3.0, eclasses use 3.2 features (e.g. += 
assignment). No 3.0 ebuild is in the tree anymore, so the PMS requirement is 
quite silly.
Practically the tree has grown beyond what PMS defines (and done so for about 
a year now with eclasses and ebuilds "violating" PMS with noone caring).

I would appreciate a resolution to this issue, preferably one that doesn't 
kill half our eclasses.

Thanks,

Patrick
