1 Hi everyone,
3 I'm email gentoo-dev@ because I'm trying to hit up as many devs as
4 possible. Hopefully you've seen the recent discussions about what to do
5 with ppc/ppc64 given the low manpower. Let's get interested people
6 meeting in #gentoo-powerpc on Monday Aug 4, 2014 @20:00 UTC. If there
7 are no objections, I'll chair the first meeting so here's the agenda so far:
9 1. Let's reconstitute the team and elect a lead.
11 2. How should we address the low manpower issue. At least two solutions
12 have been proposed so far:
13 a. Drop of many stable keywords to ~arch while retaining a core of
14 stable packages
15 b. Skip stabilization requests and let the KEYWORDS revert from
16 stable to ~ by attrition.
18 There may be other approaches. Both 2a and 2b have
19 advantages/disadvantages and their technical problems.
21 Anything else?
