Hi all,

Here is the summary from today's council meeting. The complete log will
show up at shortly.

Roll call

dberkholz   slacker [39 minutes late]
flameeyes   here
lu_zero	    here
vapier      here
jokey       here

Updates to last month's topics

	Document of being an active developer
	No updates

	Slacker arches
	2 months ago:
		vapier will work on rich0's suggestion and repost it for 
		discussion on -dev ML
		vapier said he was going to work on it this weekend.

	GLEP 46: Allow upstream tags in metadata.xml

	Last month:
		Caveat on approval about allowed protocols
		No updates; no authors present

	Last month:
		Halcy0n was working on it
		Ciaran has been contributing and has committed quite a few 
		things. Halcy0n hopes to work on it in the next couple of weeks. 
		He informed us that Ciaran said when he finishes the environment 
		tables, EAPI=0 is probably a week of solid work from having a 
		draft for review.

		Halcy0n wasn't around when the topic came up, so the above info 
		was from after the meeting.

New topics

	Summer of Code
	Should Gentoo devs be allowed to participate?

	GNOME's policy is that they favor people who haven't contributed 
	before, but they will accept great projects from contributors.

	Decision: Council members will become additional SoC admins, and 
	will serve as tiebreaker votes if they aren't actively participating 
	in SoC project selection.

	Decision: Gentoo SoC admins will decide whether non-contributors 
	should be favored over contributors.

	Package maintainers
	Proposed by killerx (anant)

	Decision: We'll promote proxy-maintainers more -- GMN, website, etc.

	amd64 arch team and big bug list
	Proposed by armin76 (raul)

	kingtaco (mike) said it's hard to keep people interested in 

	Anyone interested has had permission to keyword and stabilize 
	non-system packages since 2007.1 (see -core email from kingtaco with 
	subject "AMD64 keywording").

	Open floor
	A list of required attendees would be useful. dberkholz will start 
	creating the agenda along with this list in advance of the meeting.
	Posting the agenda on a google calendar, along with other stuff, 
	could help. flameeyes is starting to work with the PR team on this.
