In Reply to: [gentoo-project] Call for agenda items - Council meeting 2014-09-09 by Ulrich Mueller
1 I've got an item for the agenda myself:
3 mgorny started a thread about the future of dohtml on gentoo-dev [1].
4 Nobody has spoken up in favour of keeping the function.
6 So, I am asking the council to discuss and vote on the following
7 questions:
8 - Should dohtml be banned from the package manager?
9 - If yes, what would be the time frame? We could ban it in EAPI 6
10 already. Alternatively, we could deprecate it now and ban it in some
11 later EAPI.
12 - Do we need a substitute in an eclass? (Note that dohtml in Portage
13 is written in Python, so it would have to be rewritten from
14 scratch.)
15 - If the answer to the first question is no: Should einstalldirs in
16 EAPI 6 use dodoc -r for HTML_DOCS, instead of dohtml?
