Given the increasing size of the portage tree I'm becoming concerned
about the rate at which ebuilds move from the unstable ~arch keyword to
the stable one.
Has a formalized process been discussed for this? The first thing that
comes to mind is a set of tinderboxes designed to build packages with
predictable flags sending reports to each ebuild maintainer.
The second is more practical and within reach; advocacy of
stable.gentoo.org, and a policy of accepting a package as stable when
five or more users have vouched for it and two weeks have passed without
a bug report.
These are rough ideas, I'd love to hear some input on them. Any
