This makes sense to me - the original idea can come from anyone, but unless there is support by dev(s) that can maintain the package manager(s) and are willing to implement the proposed change, these ideas won't go anywhere anyways. Council can't make anything be implemented, after all. Also, if there is a working test implementation when the vote happens then it's a fairly quick process to full implementation once the EAPI is approved. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.17 (GNU/Linux) iF4EAREIAAYFAk/fM1cACgkQ2ugaI38ACPDJkAD+I1Y/4BSTz8u6QAIepvFj7Pks HoKuSdhyEsZHhD9GGOUA/1qYM8uJ6SZBC3dfJnBQOpXo6ZLz3f7e4lbEIc1BXHbc =td0e -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
