People actually working on the PMS would be better-placed to discuss its current status, if by that you mean progress toward an approved spec. The last I heard was a couple months ago when Ciaran asked us whether there were any further major issues and removed kdebuild-1 from the PDF to be approved.

Anyone working on a package manager (and anyone else suitably knowledgeable) should be able to get commit access to it. The only person "running" it is doing so by virtue of making the most commits.

This is basically the same as the first question from my ability to answer it.

I'd like to know what's holding you back from contributing to it, instead of telling us that someone else is doing things you don't like. Is there some kind of technical barrier (like the TeX)? Or what? Are you filing bugs against the parts you don't like? What's happening to them? Thanks, Donnie -- gentoo-dev@l.g.o mailing list
