I like it fine as a GLEP42 news item, I hate it as a news item on the homepage for sure. Seems to me that pointing to the website for plaintext docs like this is kinda defeating the point of these news items. It's certainly more news rather than a long-term useful document, because at some point the change will happen, and then things are just the way they are. -- Thanks, Donnie Donnie Berkholz Council Member / Sr. Developer Gentoo Linux Blog: http://dberkholz.com
