Subject: Road towards EAPI 3 main tree approval
Date: Sun, 30 Aug 2009 23:03:42 +0300
As many of you know EAPI 3 has been waiting for Portage to implement it
for many months now and I asked zmedico for his estimate on whether it
will be done this year:

19:50 < Betelgeuse> zmedico: Let's put it this way. How likely in
percentages is EAPI 2 this year?
19:50 < Betelgeuse> s/2/3/
19:51 < zmedico> I'd give it 80% chance I guess

As far as I understand paludis already has the features implemented so
maybe we could give EAPI 3 some field testing in some overlays to see
how it works in practice from ebuild writer point of view. Paludis does
not recognize it atm but probably easy to get a new revision/version out:

20:01 < zmedico> Betelgeuse: I'd guess they could test it as
EAPI=paludis-3_pre or something like that
20:01 < dleverton> Betelgeuse: it doesn't install the config file, just
uses it for tests, so that's correct

So what's the general sentiment for giving this some spin in overlays?
Maybe having some usage would build some social pressure on zmedico :)

Regards,
Petteri
