you will surely agree then- if a minority of people thinks ebuild removals should not go into the changelog, their opinion just loses out. Right?
Anyway. You and Samuli are at the moment just wasting everyone's time here. If you would like to make a productive contribution, I suggest you run and campaign in the upcoming council election. After all, we do have some sort-of democratic process here in Gentoo, and as luck runs, the election is indeed pretty soon (so you might feel able to remove ebuilds already in the near future again).
That is the best way to get policies changed and make your point.
