Subject: [gentoo-dev] Summary for March 2007 Council meeting
Date: Thu, 08 Mar 2007 23:54:00
1 - Flameeyes has retired from Gentoo so Uberlord was put into place in
2 accordance with the GLEP changes from last month.
4 - The Package Manager Spec (PMS) posted by spb looks like a good first draft.
5 It will be opened up to the public before next council meeting and we'll
6 review the status again at that time.
8 - The current state of Gentoo's public communication was reviewed. The
9 frequent fighting among people and irrelevant technical related public posts
10 are disheartening. Devrel was charged with revamping our current nettiquette
11 documents and policies for getting people to play nice in the cases where
12 they refuse to and to report back the status next meeting. Council members
13 also agreed to lead by example by taking g2boojum's example.
15 - We've expanded the Council GLEP slightly:
16 * Two Council members may (together) make executive decisions which carry the
17 weight of the full Council. Upon making such a decision, the Gentoo Council
18 mailing list must be notified. At the next meeting, it must also be noted.
19 Any disagreement from the Gentoo community will be taken to the full Gentoo
20 Council.
22 - The tr1 issue will be resolved in the short term by new-style virtuals. As
23 packages need them, they should create them. Long term, when a sane tr1
24 implementation arises (most likely from GCC itself), the virtuals will be
25 reviewed and probably dissolved.
27 - The topic of splitting the gentoo-dev mailing list up will be punted to the
28 next month's meeting.
30 - Gentoo branded hardware was discussed and many ideas thrown about. This
31 also touched on the concept of "Enterprise Gentoo".
