I am suggesting that the new 10.0 profiles be marked as EAPI-2
compliant. This involves setting the content of the 'eapi' file to "2"
and bumping up the required portage version.
This seems like progress to me. Often, developers are complaining that
they can't use SLOT syntax in profiles (I know that is EAPI-1). Since,
the only time we can bump EAPI syntax in profiles is upon a new
directory creation, this seems like a good time to me. The new
profiles are still in flux until the official stages/cd's are
Also, another good reason is: "why not?" I don't think any Gentoo user
can avoid EAPI-2 up til now anyway.
Any comments? No comments means it will be decided off-list.
Timeframe: 1 week from now.
