Subject: [gentoo-dev] December 15th Meeting Summary
Date: Fri, 16 Dec 2005 03:51:41
1 this months meeting wasnt too eventful, kind of quiet ... on the agenda:
3 - Marius: decision on multi-hash for Manifest1
4 there was a bit of hearsay about why the council was asked to review/decide on
5 this issue since we werent able to locate any portage devs at the time of the
6 meeting ... so our decision comes with a slight caveat. assuming the reasons
7 our input was asked for was summarized in the e-mail originally sent by
8 Marius [1], then we're for what we dubbed option (2.5.1). that is, the
9 portage team should go ahead with portage 2.0.54 and include support for
10 SHA256/RMD160 hashes on top of MD5 hashes. SHA1 should not be included as
11 having both SHA256/SHA1 is pointless. further more, we hope this is just a
12 hold over until Manifest2 is ironed out/approved/implemented/deployed. it
13 was also noted that we should probably omit ChangeLog and metadata.xml files
14 from the current Manifest schema as digesting them serves no real purpose.

17 - Council: portage signing
18 shortly after our November meeting, a nice summary was posted by Robin Johnson
19 that covered signing issues from top to bottom. as such, it was felt that
20 trying to throw together a GLEP would not be beneficial. instead we will be
21 adding a constant agenda item to future council meetings as to the status of
22 portage signing issues to keep the project from slipping into obscurity
23 again.
