1 Hello,
3 It makes me a bit sad to say, having helped maintain Gentoo's DEC Alpha
4 port for more than 10 years, that I think it is time to drop our stable
5 keywords to ~alpha.
7 Stable testing is a valuable service we provide to users. Time invested
8 by developers during stabilization has the potential to pay dividends to
9 users multiple times over.
11 But the presumption in that statement is that the number of users
12 meaningfully greater than the number of developers. I no longer believe
13 this is the case for Alpha.
15 As a result, I don't think it's a good use of my time to perform stable
16 testing on alpha.
18 I plan to keep the profiles "stable" (meaning no depgraph breakages) but
19 to change to ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~alpha".
21 Thoughts?
23 Matt
