If that were true, which it isn't, then by Council decision pkgcore should have been package.masked.

No, it leaves me writing documents used by Portage, Pkgcore, Paludis and at least two more independent under-development third party package management libraries.

This thread is necessary for Portage support for EAPI 3, which is being worked on. It also has considerable developer impact, since depending upon the decisions made, certain existing conventions may no longer apply to EAPI 3 things. Given that your stated intention is for "Paludis to fail", and that "opposing [me] and everything [I] do was an initiative [you] started only after careful consideration", I'll kindly ask you to stop randomly jumping out and flinging turds, since it adds nothing to the discussion at hand and only serves to make it harder for Gentoo to function as a community. -- Ciaran McCreesh
