Subject: [gentoo-dev] EAPI 7 can be used in the Gentoo repository

EAPI 7 has been approved by the Council one week ago [1]. The latest
Portage version in ~arch (2.3.36) supports it, and the Infra team has
upgraded the rsync master so that metadata cache generation will work
correctly.

Therefore, EAPI 7 ebuilds can be committed to the Gentoo repository
from now on. (Make sure that all inherited eclasses are supporting the
new EAPI, though.)

Some pointers to documentation:
