Subject: [gentoo-dev] The process for EAPI 7 has started!
Date: Tue, 26 Sep 2017 18:53:45
Message-Id: 1506452012.25101.9.camel@gentoo.org
Hi, everyone.

It's my pleasure to announce that the process for EAPI 7 has been
started. For this reason, I'd like to encourage everyone to participate
and provide feedback on the proposed features. We're slowly working
moving forward with preparing patches for the specification and Zac is
working on some real fun stuff in Portage.

Unlike EAPI 6 which included mostly cosmetic changes, EAPI 7 is going to
be a major step forward. The tentative list of changes included is
available at [1]. If you have any comments on any of them, feel free to
comment on the relevant bug. If you have any other ideas that you
believe are worth including in EAPI 7 (and can be implemented within
a reasonable time), please comment on specific bugs asking for
inclusion.

For your convenience, I have also attempted to shortly describe how
the EAPI process works under the hood. You can see the draft doc at [2].
Please take it into consideration if you're planning to submit any new
ideas for future EAPIs.

TIA.
