Ciaran, it isn't a "mistaken impression". Both Joshua and me think there are alternatives and that the choice to put profiles/* under EAPI was unfortunate and should be reviewed. It's also my opinion that what the council approved was the use of a EAPI file under each profile to mark the type of atoms that can be used in the profile files (slots, etc). - -- Regards, Jorge Vicetto (jmbsvicetto) - jmbsvicetto at gentoo dot org Gentoo- forums / Userrel / Devrel / SPARC / KDE -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.11 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - iEYEARECAAYFAkqsNSoACgkQcAWygvVEyAIrNgCcCGPWrj68Om56L3+vxpwnxWmF VGwAnj+m1ay8F84C9YDBumJQu7Ihv9iQ =osL8 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
