&gt; &gt; As we&#39;re talking about updating profiles EAPI, what do we need to get<br>

&gt;<br>
&gt; Every time this has come up, the conclusion has been &quot;it&#39;s a horrible<br>
&gt; idea from a QA perspective, since it would mean that testing something<br>
&gt; in ~arch would be different to testing it in arch&quot;.<br>
&gt;</p>
<p>Isn&#39;t that already true from a dependency standpoint?  I do see your point, but the concept of rolling out a risky flag to the brave first does make sense. </p>
<p>I think the biggest issue with ~arch is when things get deployed there for a very long time before hitting stable. That applies to libraries, baselayout-2, or flags. Things shouldn&#39;t go to ~arch unless we have a plan to make them stable (excepting one-offs).</p>
