Find an updated version below. I'll post it to gentoo-council and gentoo-dev-announce tomorrow, unless there are objections. Ulrich 1. Intro (10 minutes, including late arrivals) 1.1. Make sure that at least a couple people are logging the meeting. 1.2. Roll call. 1.3. Does everyone agree to extend today's meeting to 90 minutes? 2. Approve summary of October meeting (5 minutes) (in case it will be ready then) 3. Follow-ups from previous meeting (15 minutes) 3.1. EAPI 3 status (zmedico, ulm) 3.2. Upgrade path for old systems (leio, solar) Should important system packages (e.g. Python) be reverted to EAPI 0, in order to provide a defined upgrade path? 4. Prefix support in main Portage tree (grobian) (20 minutes) Fabian Groffen proposes that package managers should define the EPREFIX, EROOT, and ED variables (see [1] and replies). 4.1. Does the council generally support this idea? 4.2. Can it still be included in EAPI 3, or even in a fast EAPI 2.1? 5. Usage of bash 3.2 features in Portage tree (patrick) (15 minutes) Should usage of bash 3.2 features in the Portage tree be forbidden, allowed, or should the issue be ignored? See [2] for details. 6. Preservation of file modification times in EAPI 3 (ciaranm) (15 minutes) Agree upon a wording for PMS for the mtime modification change introduced to EAPI 3 last time. 7. AOB / open floor (10 minutes) [1] [2]
