Subject: [gentoo-project] [RFC] GLEP 1/2 updates for the new old-school GLEP workflow
Date: Thu, 14 Sep 2017 19:03:39
1 Hi, everyone.
3 Following the backporting of all GLEP changes from the wiki to my draft
4 repository [1] (which is still open for a separate review), I have
5 prepared an update for GLEP 1 & 2. For your convenience, the update
6 is both sent as git patches in reply to this mail, and provided
7 as a GH pull request [2].
9 The notable changes are:
11 1. A new git-based workflow is introduced that is a combination
12 of the old CVS workflow and the MW workflow (wrt access
13 restrictions). The developers create branches or fork the GLEP
14 repository, and work on their drafts there. GLEP editors merge
15 changes into master to make them official.
17 2. The old ReST markup is restored. Previously, GLEPs allowed also
18 GuideXML but this is not supported anymore.
20 3. The complete set of GLEP headers is restored, and they are updated
21 for the modern workflow:
23 - Last-Updated needs to be set manually,
24 - Version is updated manually and is semantic,
25 - all dates use ISO 8601 (GLEP 45).
27 4. Two minor changes are made for better interoperability (i.e. less
28 custom code and better support for external tools):
30 - source files are renamed from .txt to .rst,
31 - headers are surrounded by '---' to be compatible with YAML Front
32 Matter.
34 5. GLEP workflow is updated to account for additional statuses in use:
36 - 'Withdrawn' when author withdraws the GLEP (used in 4 GLEPs),
37 - 'Moribund' when GLEP is obsoleted without a replacement
38 (historically used in 1 GLEP but the need was discussed recently).
40 Please review and comment.
