Subject: [gentoo-dev] Status of ppc and ppc64 teams.
Date: Mon, 04 Aug 2014 22:01:41
1 Hi everyone,
3 The ppc and ppc64 team members just had a meeting. One of our main
4 issues was reconstituting those teams because they were in a state of
5 disorganization. We've come up with a plan to move forward and address
6 Pacho's original concern about ppc/ppc64 falling behind. Here's what we
7 came up with:
9 1. We elected jmorgan as the lead for both ppc and ppc64. He's our
10 point person for any ppc/ppc64 related issues.
12 2. If you are interested in helping out, whether you are a current team
13 member or not, please speak up! There are people formally listed as
14 part of the ppc/ppc64 herds, but there's so much inactivity, we'd like
15 to know who's going to be active. Of course we understand there is this
16 thing called "real life" but there is a difference between a little help
17 and no involvement at all. We are considering culling the team members
18 accordingly. (/me hides!)
20 3. We are going to try to keep ppc and ppc64 going as it has been, with
21 the usual STABLEREQ and KEYWORDREQ. We think we can do it without
22 overloading ourselves, especially if we get help. We do have a shared
23 ppc64 system. The bigger problem is actually KEYWORDREQ's so we are
24 going to request maintainers not ever drop ~ppc or ~ppc64 even when they
25 feel a major bump has occurred, eg a deep rewrite to a library. We know
26 this is living dangerously but we'll going to make use of the community
27 in this regard --- either someone will bug us on a broken ~ppc/~ppc64
28 package, or we'll catch it at stabilization.
30 We'll try to move ppc/ppc64 chatter to those lists, but it was important
31 that everyone know where we're at.
