Historically, no PMS change has been glep'ified, but if the council
wants PMS changes to start being glep'd I'd be willing to guinea pig
this one- earliest I'd have the glep out the door is saturday also.
Few additional notes to the proposal-
1) few has offered up his time patch wise.
2) if he backs out, I'll throw in a gurantee of having it done prior
to the next council meeting (realistically I can do it faster, I just
have other fish I'd like to be frying).
3) dev feedback generally has been positive, exempting ciaran's views
on it- please review those (if you'd like a summation I can provide
4) if there are questions re: use cycle breaking or other bits, feel
free to ask prior please- council meeting times unfortunately right
now intersect badly with my paying work so it's hard to be online to
answer questions during the meeting (that said per the norm I'll try).
5) final reminder- part of the impetus of this is that if this is
punted till EAPI5, it forces pkg_pretend as the interim use constraint
checking- this has some nasty implications on the use cycle breaking
intentions since it would require everyone to upgrade their ebuilds to
EAPI5 if they've got use state constraints. Basically screws things
up a bit and requires a potentially pointless EAPI bump for the sake
of trying to knock EAPI4 out the door now (regardless of how long it
takes to stable portage for it) rather than adding a few weeks in.
