VALID_USE- Historically, no PMS change has been glep'ified, but if the council wants PMS changes to start being glep'd I'd be willing to guinea pig this one- earliest I'd have the glep out the door is saturday also. Few additional notes to the proposal- 1) few has offered up his time patch wise. 2) if he backs out, I'll throw in a gurantee of having it done prior to the next council meeting (realistically I can do it faster, I just have other fish I'd like to be frying). 3) dev feedback generally has been positive, exempting ciaran's views on it- please review those (if you'd like a summation I can provide one). 4) if there are questions re: use cycle breaking or other bits, feel free to ask prior please- council meeting times unfortunately right now intersect badly with my paying work so it's hard to be online to answer questions during the meeting (that said per the norm I'll try). 5) final reminder- part of the impetus of this is that if this is punted till EAPI5, it forces pkg_pretend as the interim use constraint checking- this has some nasty implications on the use cycle breaking intentions since it would require everyone to upgrade their ebuilds to EAPI5 if they've got use state constraints. Basically screws things up a bit and requires a potentially pointless EAPI bump for the sake of trying to knock EAPI4 out the door now (regardless of how long it takes to stable portage for it) rather than adding a few weeks in.
