14 Those 3 or 4 cursed/console apps vs. all GUI or all non-enduser console
15 apps, big point to bring up.
17 'Op alle slakken zout leggen' in ye olde dutch. You shouldn't be pushing
18 to define everything on every level, i thought that was what this whole
19 TLP thing was good for. Better to have them just handled by some mail
20 group or irc group, we're getting into the herds realm here. Pine is
21 part of net-mail herd (or something), that is part of TLP Desktop i
22 assume. So in the end we're on the same line. Getting into details
23 again. Who brought this up.

33 I don't know if this is all a good idea, this will result in herds
34 maintaining packages for different TLP or in case this isn't allowed in
35 herds not maintaining packages they have always maintained or are the
36 major users of. TLP's concerning ebuild groups (as mentioned above
37 -base, -server, etc) should be defined by control over herds, not over
38 individual packages.
