6 Open issues that need to be addressed before submission to the Council
7 are at [1]. Comments are welcomed, so long as people bear in mind:
9 * PMS isn't the place to push through changes, and it's not an excuse
10 for special interest groups to try to sneak in policy. PMS should only
11 contradict Portage behaviour where Portage is doing something silly.
12 PMS has to consider how things *are*, rather than how things should be.
13 If you're looking to get something changed, wait until the EAPI-1
14 discussions that will no doubt take place at some point.
16 * PMS doesn't specify coding style issues (this extends to things that
17 aren't strictly speaking coding style, such as "package names should be
18 all lowercase where possible"). Things like indenting are relevant to
19 the devmanual, but have no effect upon a package manager.
21 * One issue per bug, one bug per issue, and for the sanity of those of
22 us who have to keep track of issues, try to keep feedback on bugzilla.
24 For the curious, Paludis non-compliance is being tracked at [2]. So far
25 as I'm aware, there's no central list for Portage or Pkgcore
26 non-compliance.
